Ivory Coast are anxiously awaiting the results of tests on Didier Drogba after the striker suffered an injury during Friday's 2-0 friendly win over Japan in Sion.

Drogba had just put the Ivorians ahead when he was injured in a 15th-minute clash with Japan central defender Tulio and left the field clutching his right arm.

Unconfirmed reports from Switzerland suggest the Chelsea star has fractured his elbow, an injury which would force him out of the World Cup.
