Great WC goals - Bakary Kone - Ivory Coast - Netherlands 2006
The Ivory Coast team have no luck. In their final warm up game today Didier Drogba, one of the best strikers in the world broke his arm against Japan and he will probably miss the entire cup. He's having an operation tomorrow to see if it will still allow him to play. They will need him with their first two games being against Portugal and Brazil. They can't seem to get a break in the World Cup. At their debut in 2006 they had the daunting task of opening against Argentine and then having to play Holland in their group, losing both games by 2-1 despite playing both teams even.
Drogba is noted for helping end Ivory Coasts civil war in 2005. My earlier post post on this story.
