The Netherlands will play host to Kazakhstan in their second Group A qualifying fixture at the Amsterdam Arena on Friday.

The Dutch side will be hoping to get back to winning ways, following a disappointing 2-1 defeat to the Czech Republic in their opening Group A qualifying fixture.

Following a good performance in the 2014 World Cup, where they eventually ended up third, the Dutch side seems to have lost focus, losing two back-to-back games against Italy (friendly) and the Czech Republic.

The appointment of Guus Hiddink, following the departure of Louis van Gaal to Manchester United, does not seem to have gone well for the Netherlands as they currently look like they lack focus.

Hiddink, who admits that his side are under pressure to register a win against Kazakhstan, says that he wants to triumph against his opponents by playing attacking football.

"We obviously want to win, but preferably also in the way we like to see, with attacking football," the Dutchman told a press conference on Thursday. "A win-plus, I call it."

Striker Robin van Persie also echoed Hiddink's thoughts, insisting that they need to register a win against Kazakhstan.

"We really need to win,'' the Manchester United striker told ESPN. "We are now in this situation, and everyone is well aware that the game should be won.

"If you look around you in football, then almost anyone from anywhere can win or lose. It's not as easy as it is often written. This is a fact that we have seen in the Czech Republic.''

Although the Netherlands are the clear favourites to win this game, Hiddink insists that Kazakhstan will be putting up a tough fight at the Amsterdam Stadium on Friday.

"There are no easy games anymore. I know their coach [Yuri Krasnozhan], they play well-organised football, it's not just a bunch of amateurs. We must give Kazakhstan as little space as possible."

Meanwhile, Kazakhstan will also be searching for their first win in the 2016 Euro qualifiers.

Expected lineups: Netherlands: Cillessen; Janmaat, Veltman Martins-Indi, De Vrij, Blind; De Jong, Sneijder, Robben; Memphis, Van Persie

Kazakhstan: Sidelnikov; Miroshnichenko, Vorotnikov, Abdulin, Logvinenko D Shomko; A Bogdanov, Smakov; Nusrbayev, B Islamkhan, Khizhnichenko
