Fears grow for injured Drogba

04 Jun 2010 - 14:11:01

Sven-Goran Eriksson has been handed a pre-tournament headache after star striker Didier Drogba picked up an injury during the Ivory Coast's warm-up victory against Japan.

The Chelsea star had to leave the pitch in the 15th minute after scoring a goal in the 2-0 win when he was felled by Japan's Marcos Tulio Tanaka.

Reports claim the forward, who was replaced by Seydou Doumbia, has fractured his elbow.

French newspaper L'Equipe is claiming that a scan has revealed that Drogba will not be able to play at the World Cup.

If the news about the 32-year-old is true, it will be a massive blow for the Ivory Coast who are in a tough group that also includes Brazil, Portugal and North Korea.
