Check Out How Solely Didier Drogba Put An End To A 5 Years Civil War Raging His Country

Didier Drogba is an Ivorian retired professional footballer who played as a striker. He is the all-time top scorer and former captain of the Ivory Coast national team. He is one of the best players the world has ever seen. Drogba was named Chelsea's greatest ever player in a poll of 20,000 fans conducted by Chelsea FC Magazine in 2012, and he was also named in the Chelsea team of the 2010–2020 decade by Chelsea fans in 2020.

Didier Drogba is pictured on the day he solely put an end to Ivory Coast's civil war. He asked for their match with Madagascar to be held in a rebel-held area, where the entirety of the country united to watch a 5-0 win, & put an end to a 5-year-long war.

Speaking after the match, he said, "Men and women of Ivory Coast. From the north, south, center, and west, we proved today that all Ivorians can coexist and play together with a shared aim - to qualify for the World Cup".

"We promised you that the celebrations would unite the people - today we beg you on our knees."The players fell to their knees. "The one country in Africa with so many riches must not descend into war. Please lay down your weapons and hold elections."The players then rose and sang: "We want to have fun, so stop firing your guns!" The words had a huge effect, eventually helping the two warring sides to the negotiating table where a ceasefire was signed.
