Dmitri Lyapkin has been recalled after over two years in the international wilderness as the coach of Kazakhstan national football team Arno Pijpers unveiled his squad to face Tajikistan and Belgium.

FC Khimki full-back Lyapkin is one of three players recalled by Pijpers, with Daniyar Mukanov back 14 months after his last international appearance while midfielder Eduard Sergienko has also been recalled after missing last month's defeat by Finland. That loss left Kazakhstan second from bottom in UEFA EURO 2008™ Group A ahead of their meeting with Belgium on 12 September. Centre-back Maksim Zhalmagambetov and playmaker Ruslan Baltiyev are banned for the fixture in Almaty but may feature against Tajikistan four days earlier.
