Shocking fan footage of the flare being thrown at Igor Akinfeev during Montenegro v Russia [Video]

Montenegro’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Russia was suspended after just a minute when a flare from the Montenegro fans struck Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

The 28 year old CSKA Moscow star was rushed to hospital but, fortunately, could be fit for next weekend’s game against Zenit.

One Montenegrin fan, standing just yards away from the perpetrator, caught the controversial incident on camera.

Level on points with Russia, Montenegro could be hit hard by UEFA’s final decision on the outcome.

Oddly, there is no sound in the fan footage video but you can get the gist without it.
