Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba did something pretty incredible on Sunday night: he scored two back-heeled goals within the space of two minutes, earning Montreal a 2-1 win over Toronto FC in the process.
Montreal were 1-0 down at the time, but two moments of pure inspiration from the 37-year-old Drogba turned the game on its head. (Scroll down this page to see both of Drogba’s back-heeled goals).
In both instances, the Ivory Coast legend ran across his marker before intelligently back-heeling the ball past Toronto’s embarrassed goalkeeper Chris Konopka.

Toronto have recorded some impressive results of late - spearheaded by marquee signing Sebastian Giovinco and Jose Altidore - but they had no answer for Drogba, who has now scored 11 goals in 11 matches for his current employers, on Sunday.
Drogba may have struggled to impress during his final season at Stamford Bridge, but it seems some Chelsea fans would take him back in a heartbeat after their side’s woeful start to the 2015-16 campaign. Scroll down to see some of the best reactions on Twitter.

Chelsea are imploding under Jose Mourinho
Chelsea find themselves 15th in the Premier League table after suffering their fifth league defeat of the campaign against West Ham on Saturday afternoon - a match which saw Nemanja Matic sent off and Jose Mourinho sent to the stands.
Five points outside of the relegation zone, Chelsea are struggling badly and Mourinho is a man under significant pressure.
Defeat against Liverpool on Saturday could potentially spell the end of the Portuguese coach at Stamford Bridge - although it would cost Roman Abramovich a fortune to axe the club’s under-performing manager after he signed a new contract earlier this year.
Now more than ever, Mourinho needs his players to pull together and produce the type of performances than they’re capable of.
Right now, only one or two players in the Chelsea squad can truly say they’re earning their astronomical wages.
