Didier Drogba’s Greatest Move in the Game Versus Barcelona
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Drogba scored the game winner and was a beast throughout the soccer match, his strength and fight were something Barcelona players were unaccustomed to facing in La Liga. One might even say the downfall of Chelsea of late has been Fernando Torres being used instead of Drogba, displacing Drogba was a terrible mistake by the Chelsea managers.
However, during the game versus Barcelona, Drogba’s repeated falls and dives were beyond the scope of even Sergio Busquests usual play actings. This leap into the air and then fall to the ground was his greatest move in the game. I wonder if we’ll see more of his gymnastics at the Camp Nou next week.
After the Drogba leap there was of course the Drogba faceplant, like he’d been shot or something. When in reality he leaped up to try to head the ball and miscalculated, sending him crashing to the ground. He hadn’t even been touched.
In total, Drogba spent 6 minutes and 30 seconds either rolling around on the ground or floating in the air during Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final first-leg against Barcelona.
While there’s no question thatDrogba will go down in soccer history as one of Chelsea’s greatest forwards, but he has been known to try and draw the ref into giving out red and yellow cards quite a bit. Here’s video of Drogba overreacting after claiming he was hit in the face!
