Germany trounced Kazakhstan 4-0 in the EURO 2012 qualifying match in the southern German city of Kaiserslautern on March 26, 2011, AFP reports.

Germany kept its unbeaten record in Group A.Kazakhstan remained point-less and goal-less at the bottom of the group.

A Miroslav Klose double gave Germany a big push towards Euro 2012 qualification.

"We know they weren't a great side although they were compact and defended pretty well but I'm pleased with my goals at the beginning and the end of the game," said Klose after the game.

Loew had called on his men to entertain against their opponents, ranked 132 in the world, and his players did not take long to warm the crowd up, taking the lead within three minutes.

Kazakhstan defending allowed Bayern Munich striker Klose to sneak in completely unmarked at the back post from a free-kick on the left and slot the ball home from less than a yard out.

In the first half, the visitors' goal was under constant siege and Germany missed a couple of gilt-edged chances before finally doubling their advantage in the 25th minute.

Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil whipped in another set-piece, from the right this time, into a crowded penalty box and Thomas Mueller beat his marker to the header, nodding it smartly into the corner.

And the 22-year-old made it three just before the break, chesting down another cross from Ozil, finding himself totally unmarked in front of goal and firing it past the hapless David Loria between the Kazahkstan posts.

In the second part of the game Kazakhstan had a few breakaway chances, forcing goalkeeper Manuel Neuer into two sharp saves.

Even the introduction of the Bundesliga's top scorer, Bayern Munich's Mario Gomez, did not give Germany the required cutting edge as they too often tried to pass the ball into the net.

Another pin-point pass from the impressive Ozil found his club colleague Sami Khedira in the 81st minute, but the midfielder could only head wide, capping a frustrating second half for the home side.

But Klose tapped home a fourth for his 61st international goal, bringing him within seven of Gerd Mueller's all-time German record.
