Video: Didier Drogba’s very athletic goal-line clearance for Ivory Coast
The man has still got it.
He might be 35, but Didier Drogba is still the man. With his country needing to preserve a two-goal lead against Senegal to book their place at the World Cup next year, they can at least partially thank the Galatasaray man for doing the job.
With a header seemingly goalbound from a cross, Drogba acrobatically leapt to clear the ball via an overhead volley.
In the end, Ivory Coast and Senegal would draw 1-1, sending Drogba’s side through 4-2 on aggregate.
