The keeper who can’t keep a clean sheet….

Igor Akinfeev

Life as a goalkeeper can be cruel – just ask CSKA Moscow’s Igor Akinfeev. The Russia international was three minutes away from ending an unwanted record on Tuesday by keeping his first Champions League clean sheet in 10 years. That was until Monaco’s Bernardo Silva struck in the 87th minute of the Group E tie in Moscow. Akinfeev, 30, has now conceded in his past 40 games in Europe’s top competition, dating back to a goalless draw against Arsenal on 1 November 2006.
