The best Igor Akinfeev jokes after the Russian goalkeeper’s costly error during the 1-1 Group H stalemate against South Korea.

Let’s take a look at the best Igor Akinfeev jokes after the Russia goalkeeper’s disastrous mistake vs South Korea in his side’s first game of Brazil 2014.
People using Russian names to make jokes. Hopefully Akinfeev some off twitter. @Football_SL #RussianJokes

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.

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."

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