Drogba’s still got it!
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is still running defences ragged even at the ripe old age of 39, as demonstrated by this stunning solo effort for Phoenix Rising FC.
The Ivorian received the ball on the edge of the box and escaped the attention of three defenders before steering the ball home as he used to do at his peak in the Premier League.
One of the finest players in Chelsea’s history, Drogba had two spells at Stamford Bridge, scoring 163 goals for the Blues in total.
He has since played at a lower level in the US, but remains a joy to watch nevertheless.

How Chelsea could have done with a striker of his quality on the pitch yesterday, as they slumped to a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.
Michy Batshuayi started up front for Antonio Conte’s side but had a poor game as he deputised for the injured Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea fans’ love is still strong
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans were already calling for Drogba’s return even before videos of this superb strike appeared online…
Come back Drogba we need you… We just lost to Crystal Palace….

But also Drogba currently would most definitely..most definitely do better than Batshuayi

You still think Batshuayi is a top striker? I will prefer an aging Drogba over that.
