Russia's Igor Akinfeev struck by flare

The Euro 2016 qualifier between Montenegro and Russia is suspended after goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was struck by a flare just seconds after kickoff.

Russia's Euro 2016 Group G qualifier with Montenegro was temporarily suspended after goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was struck by a flare thrown from the stands just seconds after kickoff.

Akinfeev received treatment on the pitch for several minutes before being stretchered from the field.

The game was suspended and both teams returned to their dressing rooms while a decision was made over whether or not to continue.

However, after a 35-minute delay play resumed with Yuri Lodigin replacing Akinfeev in the Russia goal.
