Drogba Scores On Return

Recommended Posts

Soccer-Drogba scores in his first start since knee surgery

Didier Drogba started his first game since a knee operation last month and scored in Ivory Coast's 2-0 African Nations Cup warm-up win over Kuwait in Kuwait City on Saturday.

Drogba, who came on as a substitute last week for his English club Chelsea in his first match back after a month-long lay-off, got the second goal of the game.

It was the African footballer of the year's 30th goal for the Ivorians in 47 international appearances.

His Chelsea team mate Salomon Kalou had opened the scoring six minutes earlier for the team coached by Frenchman Gerard Gili, who replaced German Uli Stielike last Monday.

Good to see both Chelsea boys getting on the score sheet, more so Drogba as we need him to stay sharp and injury free.

sounds awesome, both Chelsea players scoring. 30 goals for DD in 47 games, jesus thats immense. i hope all the Chelsea boys play well, thats one of the main reasons i'll watch a lot of games. Hope Ivory Coast win it, they were unlucky last time. The 2 Chelsea guys up front will be key for them.
