Russia goalie Igor Akinfeev was targeted by a laser pointer (what year is this?) in the second half of Thursday’s game with Algeria. How much the pointer distracted him or not might be discussed afterward since Algeria tied the game up on a header by Islam Slimani. Laser pointer or not, it’s been a rough World Cup for Akinfeev — once upon a time linked to a move to Arsenal. His gaffe vs. South Korea might cost Russia a chance to advance. As it stands at 1-1, Algeria would advance to the Round of 16 and play Germany.
