“It’s a f**king disgrace.”
Breaking news indeed (ho ho): reports claims Ivory Coast spearhead Didier Drogba fractured his right elbow in their recent friendly against Japan. if confirmed, the injury means he will miss the whole World Cup and possibly the start of the Premier League season.
It’s the worst possible news for the Ivorians, but quite the opposite for group rivals Brazil, Portugal and North Korea. As has been pointed out already, the Group of Death is suddenly a little less frightening.
First Rio, now the big Drog. Dropping like flies.
More details on both injuries when they drop.
