Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba has been given the green light to play with a protective cast on his arm for the World Cup clash with Portugal. The Chelsea forward's participation had been in doubt after he suffered a fractured arm in a challenge during a friendly match against Japan in the build-up to the World Cup. FIFA's head of media Nicolas Maingot said: "Regarding Didier Drogba, the referee of the match Jorge Larrionda has okayed the cast which Didier Drogba will use to play. The cast has been seen by the Portuguese delegation."
