Ivory Coast can afford to play without Drogba and we can't ?! :fainthv9:

They're playing against us, Poland, they can afford to play without their whole 1st team and manager.

OK, that's strange. We beat Ivory Coast 3:1 and I won the bet, because I was the only man in my class who said that we'll win. Of course I treated it as a joke, but now I'm wondering what the prize will be. Great result, great goals and good to see us playing nice football once again. If we had our best defence we wouldn't have conceded, but that's life. Fabiański was solid as he is lately in Premiership. Can't wait to see the Boruc v Fabiański rivalry.

Drogba, Kalou & Essien all playing tonight.

Watched the first half of Mali-Côte d'Ivoire game. Drogba been bit lazy but that's good, energy perserving. Played an important role in their first goal on 3. minute. Long ball forward from the midfield, Drogba managed to chest it down while having two defenders near him , pass it between the two defenders to Gervinho who passed it to Didier Ya Konan for an easy tap in. So far so good. Tiote been a beast in midfield. Kalou playing as right winger.

Just started watching now (69minutes gone)

Kalou just missed a sitter & Drogba looks to have woken up..
