Before Islam Silmani's game-tying goal from a set piece, cameras captured a green light on the face of the Russian keeper seconds before the free kick was taken.
Keeper Igor Akinfeev was even seen gesturing at someone, but it's unknown whether he was trying to get the attention of the referee or a teammate as the green light moved over his body and face.
But when televisions showed the reverse angle of Algeria's equalizing goal, they appear to have captured the suspect who was pointing a green laser into the eyes of Russian keeper.
There's still no word on whether he was impacted by the light.
Check out the vine below to see more of the green light in Akinfeev's face.
