The Netherlands grabbed two late goals to snatch a 3-1 home victory over 10-man Kazakhstan having trailed until just past the hour mark in their Euro 2016 qualifier Friday.The Dutch took the three points thanks to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Ibrahim Afellay and a Robin van Persie penalty, having fallen behind in the 17th minute to Renat Abdulin's diving header from a corner in the Group A match.The Kazakhs had successfully defended in numbers until the 62nd minute when substitute Huntelaar equalized with a header and the side were down to 10 men when striker Baurzhan Dzholchiyev was sent off two minutes later for a foul on Afellay.Afellay, making his comeback for the national team after an absence of 23 months, put the Netherlands ahead thanks to a 20-meter strike with only eight minutes remaining and van Persie wrapped up the win by converting a penalty in the 89th.
