MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Russian Igor Akinfeev added to his reputation as the hottest goalkeeping prospect in Europe with an outstanding performance for CSKA Moscow in its 1-0 loss at Inter Milan in the first leg of its UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series.

Argentine Diego Milito's goal in the 65th minute was all Inter could muster in a second-half barrage.

"Of course, 1-0 is a good result," CSKA coach Leonid Slutsky said, "but we should have been able to do better. We hoped to get a 0-0, but given how many chances they had it could have been a lot worse than this."

Akinfeyev, 23, made good saves on Samuel Eto’o, Dejan Stankovic, Esteban Cambiasso and Goran Pandev.

The first-choice CSKA keeper since the age of 17, Akinfeyev is a reported target for Manchester United.
