Turkey cruised to victory in their Euro 2012 qualifier in Kazakhstan. Two goals in three minutes from Arda Turan and Hamit Altintop had them in control midway through the first half, and Nihat Kahveci made sure of the three points 14 minutes from time.
With Guus Hiddink in charge for the first time, Turkey looked assured as they overpowered their hosts.
Turkey needed little time to take control of the game, and had already gone close a couple of times before Turan put them in front in the 24th minute with a close-range strike.
Two minutes later, Altintop all but ended the game as a contest as he volleyed home.
Were it not for wayward shooting, Turkey might have added more but they would get a third late on when Turan's long pass found Kahveci and he rounded the goalkeeper before slotting home.
