I bet Akinfeev is the kind of guy who always spills his tea in the morning when moving the mug from his kitchen to the living room.

Akinfeev couldn’t catch chlamydia off a £10 prostitute

If I were Igor Akinfeev, I'd lay low for a bit. Find a safe house. Go off the grid.

Flatmate (female one) just said this about the Korea goal: "Well, it would of gone in anyway… If he [Akinfeev] wasn't there."

Rob Green in 2010, Igor Akinfeev in 2014….Fabio Capello thinking about playing without a keeper for the rest of the tournament.

Robert Green in 2010. Igor Akinfeev in 2014. Both managed by Fabio Capello, and both in their opening game. "The Capello Effect."
