Didier Drogba has told skysports.com of his delight after Chelsea booked their place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. The Blues edged through 7-5 on aggregate against Liverpool after a sensational second-leg at Stamford Bridge ended 4-4 on aggregate. Drogba also insists that the first Chelsea goal should be credited to him, after his glancing shot was deflected into his own net by Reds goalkeeper Jose Reina. "My goal was given to Reina at first, I was upset, you saw how I worked hard to touch that ball, thank god it was credited to me," Drogba told skysports.com. "We started badly, that is why we came out early in the second half to show our credentials. "When you are losing 2-0 at home, you are scared, but we showed we are men, so we put them under pressure." Drogba is relishing the prospect of facing Barcelona in the semi-finals. "Against Barcelona it will be another final for us, they are a great team, but we can beat them, they know it," he continued. "We are looking forward to it, to be champions of Europe you have to beat all big teams."
