KRASNODAR, Russia, November 27 (R-Sport) – Dynamo goalkeeper Anton Shunin has recovered after receiving burns to his eye when a flare was thrown onto the pitch during a game against Zenit St. Petersburg, his club told R-Sport on Tuesday.
Shunin was briefly hospitalized following the incident earlier this month, which prompted the referee to call the match off in the 36th minute.
"Today's medical examination showed that Anton has no complications and made the expected recovery,” Konstantin Alexeev said.
“Doctors allowed him to train with the main group, and it is for head coach Dan Petrescu to decide whether he will play in the next game."
After the incident, Zenit were ordered to play two home games behind closed doors and Dynamo were awarded a technical 3-0 victory.
The 25-year-old Shunin is the first-choice goalkeeper for the Moscow team, who played in 12 out of 17 games for Dynamo in the Russian Premier League this season.
Dynamo host Rubin Kazan on Saturday.

The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
