Didier Drogba spotted at Yankees game ahead of World Cup warm up

Published Add your comment

Soccer star Didier Drogba took time out from his World Cup preparations to take in a Major League Baseball game Wednesday.

The former Chelsea striker, who currently plies his trade in Turkey for Galatasaray, posted a video to his official Instagram account showing he and a number of his Ivory Coast teammates enjoying the St Louis Cardinals - New York Yankees match up:

"Just landed in ST Louis and I had the chance to go and watch the Cardinals vs Yankees!!! What a great moment," wrote the 36-year-old.

Drogba is in the United States ahead of the Ivory Coast's pre-World Cup warm up game against Bosnia which takes place on Friday night.

The video shows the former Premier League ace taking in the atmosphere inside Busch Stadium and interacting with some of the local fans. Unfortunately for Drogba it seems like they aren't quite so familiar with who he is judging by the reaction of the elderly woman at the end of the clip.

Drogba is a known enthusiast for US sport with the veteran striker having appeared in several advertising campaigns for the NBA in the recent past.

The player will be hoping he can follow the example set by the New York Yankees when he arrives in Brazil for this summer's tournament, with the NYC ball club having won out 7-4 in Wednesday's game.
