WATCH: Didier Drogba and Kaka continue to roll-back the years

Didier Drogba, Chelsea legend, Ivorian legend, and to be quite frank, all round top bloke. You’d be pretty hard-pressed to find a football fan who doesn’t like the striker – baring Arsene Wenger ?.

The former Chelsea man was rolling back the years, yesterday, with a trademark free-kick, scoring before the clock had even ticked past the first-minute mark.

Although the ‘keeper has had an absolute nightmare, Drogba’s free-kicks have been so effective over the years because of that unpredictable swing the striker manages to get on the ball. For that reason, we sort of feel sorry for the man between the sticks.

It wasn’t all bad for the goalie, as he still managed to have the last laugh, as he saved the Ivorian’s penalty later in the game… what an awful pen, though, Didier. Really, with the one step?!

However, another legend of the game did manage to bag a brace in the match – as Kaka found the net with his second-half penalty.

Kaka’s, Orlando City, ran out 4-1 winners, as Montreal Impact have now lost three of the their last five matches.

Drogba’s side find themselves well behind Frank Lampard’s, New York City, who lead the MLS eastern conference. To be fair, though, with Franky’s recent form, there’s no surprise the Man City legend is leaving teams in his wake.

After getting booed by the demanding ‘Big Apple’ crowd, Lamps has found the net 11 times in 13 games, leading to a statue being erected in his honour, and meeting George Clooney along the way.

Seems that ex-Premier League players do pretty well for themselves across the pond, perhaps they should give Bastian Schweinsteiger and Yaya Toure a call before the Manchester Derby on Saturday.
