Hallur Hansson: Scored the goal that secured the Faroe Islands a point against Kazakhstan

The Faroe Islands secured their first point of the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw against Kazakhstan.

Having lost their previous eight Group C matches, manager Lars Olsen, captain of Denmark when they won Euro 1992, saw his side take the lead as half-time approached.

Hallur Hansson's effort in the 41st minute at Torsvollur was just the Faroes fourth of qualifying and their first since their trip to Kazakhstan last month.

Jonas Tor Naes provided the assist from the right wing and Hansson fired home a fine right-footed strike from 25 yards out.

Any hopes of a victory, though, took a major blow 10 minutes into the second half.

Having scored in 2-1 defeat of the Faroes last month in Astana, striker Andrey Finochenko got on the scoresheet again as he headed home a Nurbol Zhumaskaliyev's corner from close range.

The hosts pushed for a winner for the remainder of the half with Hansson continuing to threaten, but the Kazakhs held out for a share of the spoils in Torshavn.
