Foreigners admired Akinfeev and remembered Messi

MOSCOW, December 4 Foreign Internet users do not believe that goalkeeper of the Moscow football club CSKA Igor Akinfeev still continues his professional career, and his sporting longevity is admired.
A video is gaining popularity on social network X, in which Akinfeev wanted to take a goal kick from a snowy hummock, but the referee forbade him to do so. The episode occurred in the Sunday match between CSKA and Rostov (2:0) in the 17th round of the Russian Premier League (RPL).
“”I knew Akinfeev even before Lionel Messi won his first Ballon d'Or, how is he still playing?” – asks streamer Drakson.
“Igor Akinfeev played professional football before I went to college. Most matches in the Russian league of all time. And he's only 37 years old. Crazy,” wrote blogger Aaron West.

Some users recalled that Akinfeev was the best goalkeeper in the computer game FIFA 10, and some visitors to the social network joked about the Russian’s age, not believing that he was still playing.
Akinfeev is 37 years old, he has been playing for CSKA throughout his career. As part of the army team, Akinfeev became a six-time Russian champion, won seven national Cups and Super Cups, and also won the UEFA Cup. He played more than a hundred matches for the Russian national team, won bronze at Euro 2008 and reached the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup.
