PODGORICA, March 29. /TASS/. A group G 2016 European Football Cup qualifier between Montenegro and Russia on Friday evening had to be terminated.
Play was halted well into the second half, with no goals scored by either side when in the 68th minute a fan hurled an object at Russia’s defender Dmitry Kambarov. Shortly before that Russia’s midfielder Roman Shirokov failed to score from the penalty spot.
Earlier, the game had to be paused seconds after kick-off when a flare hurled onto the pitch hit Russia’s goalkeeper Igor Akinfeyev in the head. Akinfeyev left the pitch on stretchers, while the referee took both teams under the stands for a while. Akinfeyev was delivered to a hospital in Podgorica. The referee resumed play about 30 minutes later.
