Drogba helped us fall in love with the game and his goal Wednesday was sick.
For Chelsea’s Didier Drogba, coming to play in the Barclays Premier League was the realisation of a lifelong dream. It gave him the chance to perform at the highest level and inspire thousands of youngsters in his native Ivory Coast, the place where his own passion for football began. Away from the pitch, the Didier Drogba Foundation raises awareness of the issues facing young people in Africa, as well as improving health and education facilities in the Ivory Coast. Didier’s Foundation has given people the chance to dream, and for that, we presented him with the Barclays Spirit of the Game Award. Take a look at the Foundation’s story so far.
