World Cup 2014: Fabio Capello unhappy as laser shone at keeper
Russia coach Fabio Capello was unhappy a laser was shone in goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev's face during his side's World Cup game against Algeria.
Television footage showed a green laser pointed at Akinfeev as he tried to defend Yacine Brahimi's free-kick, which Islam Slimani then scored from.
That goal saw the match end 1-1, a result that eliminated Russia.
"The goalkeeper was unable to do his job. The laser beam was in his face," said ex-England manager Capello.
"He was blinded by the laser beam. It is not an excuse. There are pictures and you can see that in the footage."
Russia, needing a win to make the knockout stages, took a sixth-minute lead through Aleksandr Kokorin, but Slimani headed in from Brahimi's 60th-minute set-piece as Algeria qualified for the last 16 for the first time.
Capello, who confronted the officials at the end of the match, has now only won one of his seven games at two World Cups.
The 68-year-old took England into the second phase, before losing 4-1 to Germany in South Africa in 2010, but drew twice and lost once as Russia failed to make it out of their group in Brazil.
Russia host the next World Cup and the Italian, who agreed a contract extension to 2018 earlier this year, has no plans to resign.
Asked whether he would stay in charge of Russia, Capello replied: "If they still want me, yes.
