Drogba signed a one-year contract with Chelsea on Friday after a free transfer from Galatasaray.

Drogba may be on the tail-end of his career, but he is still a solid goal scorer. He isn't expected to start for the Blues, with Diego Costa occupying that role now, although Drogba may be an excellent teacher for Romelu Lukaku, who is still at Stamford Bridge for the moment.

Drogba did not start Thursdays match but was subbed on in the 60th minute for Wilfried Bony in the 2-1 loss to Colombia.

Once again Ivory coast played very well once Drogba was subbed on, but just couldn't make the full comeback falling just short 2-1. At this point its clear that Drogba cant play a full 90 minutes, but this is a huge problem for a team who plays infinitely better with him in the lineup. Lets see if the dynamic forward gets a start in whats surely a must win Tuesday vs Greece.

Drogba was subbed on in 62nd minute for Serey Die but failed to record any goals or assists.

This may seem like a poor performance, but as soon as Drogba came on Ivory Coast went on a flurry and just looked much more confident. Drogba was able to get off two shots, but his insertion to the team just rose the spirits and the team responded by grabbing two goals within four minutes of his substitution. It will be fascinating to see if Drogba draws a start in their next match up against Colombia on Thursday.
