Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been selected in the Ivory Coast´s preliminary squad for next month´s African Nations Cup.

The 29-year-old is currently sidelined after undergoing surgery on a knee injury on Saturday, and Blues manager Avram Grant this week claimed he would be out of action for around three weeks.

Drogba´s injury problems have not, however, stopped him from being included in Uli Stielike´s 26-man squad, along with team-mate Salomon Kalou.
