Didier Drogba is one of Africa's most distinguished football clubs ever represented. During his football career, the Ivorian had two stints with Chelsea. The first stint was from 2004 to 2012, the other stint was from 2014 to 2015.

Chelsea's performance in Ivory received numerous awards, including the 2006 and 2009 African Football Award. He also won Chelsea's gold boots player of the year (2010) and Epl (2006/07 and 2009/10).

Drogba not only won individual awards, he also helped Chelsea to win many trophies. He has 10 goals in 10 finals with a career record. But how often did the goals help Chelsea to win an important trophy?

1. Chelsea vs Arsenal ( League Cup Final 2007)

Anyone who has followed Drogba's career will know his score against Arsenal. In this final Arsenal met their nemesis and in the 12th minute took the lead through a Theo Walcott goal. It took Drogba only 8 minutes to match. With 6 minutes to go, Drogba scored his second goal and Chelsea scored a win of 2-1 and a league cup for Chelsea.

2. Chelsea vs Manchester United ( Fa Cup Final 2007)

That same year, Drogba proved a great player when he scored the only goal of the 2007 Fa Cup Final.

The final Fa Cup match between Chelsea and Arsenal was the first match in the new Wembley. Both teams fight in 90 minutes to find the back of the net so the game has gone into extra time. With only 4 minutes of the additional 30 minutes left to play, Drogba has tied up a Frank Lampard Pass to win Chelsea's 1-0 and Fa Cup Trophy.

3. Chelsea vs Portsmouth ( Fa Cup Final 2010)

A week after Drogba helped Chelsea in the 2009/10 Epl title, the 2010 Fa Cup Finals took place. He scored 29 goals to win the golden boot award for the Premier League.

The first half ended without a goal but Drogba struck the woodwork twice. In the second half, Portsmouth was given the chance to lead when a penalty was awarded in the 54th minute. However, Petr Cech saved the kick of Kelvin Prince Boateng to keep the score 0-0.

Then Drogba rose in the 59th minute to turn a freekick into the net. This was the winning goal as Lampard was missing an opportunity to achieve 2-0 when his penalty went off target in the later stages of the game.

4. Chelsea vs Liverpool ( Fa Cup Final 2012)

In the 2012 Fa cup final, Chelsea beat Liverpool. In the 11th minute of the game, Ramires gave Chelsea an early lead as he received a pass from Juan Mata and fired Pepe Reina in the past. In the 52nd minute, Drogba twice the advantage of Chelsea after receiving a timely Frank Lampard pass.

Andy Carroll scored a goal, but the Drogba goal proved the difference between the two teams.

5. Chelsea vs Bayern Munich ( Uefa Champions league final 2012)

That was probably the most important match of Didier Drogba as a Chelsea player. It has been his chance to be redeemed in the Uefa Champions Final 2008.

In the 83rd minute of the game, Bayern Munich took the lead through Muller, but in the 88th minute, they were hit by a powerful Didier Drogba header to force extra time. Bayern missed an opportunity to lead in additional time when Robben's penalty saved Chelsea's goalkeeper after Drogba had slain and wounded Ribery.

Mata missed his spot kick for Chelsea during the penalty shootout, while Olic and Schweinsteiger were missing for Bavaria. The result was 3-3 when Drogba took the final penalty of 5. He sent Bavarians the wrong way to give Chelsea a 4-3 penalty shooting win.

That kick was Drogba's last kick of his first stinct as a Chelsea player and the last he scored in a final for Chelsea.

These are the five times the goal of Drogba was instrumental in helping Chelsea win an important trophy.
