GIF: Akinfeev Messes Up Simple Save And Concedes Goal

Russian goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev, messed up a simple save and Russia had to settle for a draw in game they should have won.

In a game that Russia should’ve handily won, the Russians were forced to walk away with a draw to their name. With only one point on the board they still have Belgium and Algeria to face. Belgium is the clear front-runner to win the group while Algeria is a team that has kept up with the European nation.

Russia needed a win against Korea Republic to get off to a good start but they made many mistakes.

Possibly the most notable mistake of the match was Russian goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev, messing up a simple save to the shoulder area.


Fabio Capello just can’t get enough of these.

Here, Robert Green, keeper for England, makes a similar mistake four years ago when Capello was the coach of the English National Team.

I guess his uncontrolled rants make sense now.
