Drogba returns with winning strike

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba returned to action and fired Chelsea into the Champions League knockout stages with the winner in a 2-1 victory over CFR Cluj at Stamford Bridge.

Drogba, suspended from domestic action for three matches as punishment for throwing a coin at Burnley fans, came off the bench in the 65th minute and struck six minutes later.

It was the first home win in more than a month for Luiz Felipe Scolari's men, with the Romanians threatening an upset when Yssouf Kone cancelled out Salomon Kalou's opener.
