Drogba to miss World Cup due to injury
This is sure to disappoint the many fans who were waiting to watch Didier Drogba work his magic during the World Cup in South Africa. In a friendly match against Japan Marcus Tulio Tanaka’s knee connected with his elbow, fracturing it.
His Cote D’Ivoire teammates remain optimistic, opting to wait for the final verdict from a doctor. “It’s a fracture in his arm,” a spokesman said. “The doctor hasn’t said yet whether he can play in the World Cup. We don’t know if he will be able to play the first game – that depends on the verdict of the medical team. But he’s definitely not out.”
This would indeed be a blessing. Much of the team’s hopes of moving forward were tied to Drogba being an integral part of the team. A final verdict from a doctor will determine if he plays or not. I am sure many fingers remain crossed as people wait to hear whether he will play or not. Let us hope so. His playing style is worth watching and is always a huge draw.
