On Sunday, Group H of the 2024 European Championship qualifications at the Astana Arena features a matchup between Kazakhstan and Northern Ireland.

The Norn Iron are seeking to snap their four-game losing streak as they enter the weekend. Three points ahead of San Marino in the lowest spot in Group H, who have dropped all five of their games thus far, Northern Ireland is now last but one.

Kazakhstan suffered a 1-0 loss to Finland on Thursday, which sent them hurtling back to earth. With nine points from five games, Kazakhstan is presently in fourth position in Group H, but with all three points this weekend, they may tie Finland for first place.
