Soccer News: Didier Drogba Cleared To Play With Cast


The Ivory Coast forward will be in against Portugal Tuesday.

Drogba suffered a broken arm just over a week ago in a warm up match against Japan. Drogba underwent surgery on the arm to keep the break stabalized and it has paid off for him as he’s been cleared to return to the pitch.

FIFA officials said the cast was examined by match referee Jorge Larrionda of Uruguay, and Portuguese team officials and has been approved. Portugal is the Ivory Coast’s first opponent.
