Didier Drogba dropped from Ivory Coast squad

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba was left out of Cote d’Ivoire’s squad for football World Cup qualifier against Gambia on Saturday.

Drogba disappointed coach Sabri Lamouchi after the quarterfinal exit at the African Cup of Nations earlier in the year and it is said that the Galatasaray striker’s career at the national team may come to an end, reports Xinhua.

Lamouchi said on Wednesday that he didn’t pick Drogba for Saturday’s game because he “needs to work to become the Drogba you knew before.”

Cote d’Ivoire leads its World Cup qualifying group.
