Didier Drogba is running the show at Pheonix Rising both on and off the pitch as the co-owner and player was the hero for his team against LA Galaxy II.
Rising were in need of a hero as Drogba told a young fan that his team would score from a corner that the Ivorian delivered to perfection, in a goal that was so reminiscent of the striker’s famous goal for Chelsea in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in 2012.

It seems like everything the Chelsea legend touches, turns to goals!
