  1. wow!wow!wow!our legend our hero our man for the big occasion.#drogba will be playing the championsleague knock out stage come new year i love to see playing against the blues what a momment is that gonna be.drogba well done

  2. Nice first touch and nice finish. I mean, the keeper was covering that far post and he still finished to that side.

    Crappy centerback play though. I mean, those guys just ran around in the box and made zero effort to hurl themselves at the ball.

  3. This is great on so many levels, especially because Mina Rzouki is getting trolled so hard on twitter.
