Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba still has it.
Drogba, who is now playing with Phoenix Rising FC in the USL, unleashed a wicked shot from approximately 35 yards in Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Galaxy II. The ball hit the upper corner for a goal. Galaxy II keeper Clement Diop didn’t have a chance.
Take a look at the video:
