Former-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba got on the scoresheet for new club Galatasaray on Saturday with an incredible 20-yard fluked lob.

The Ivory Coast striker looked to control the ball just outside the box, but the ball pinged off his shin and over the hapless keeper.

Drogba joined Galatasaray during the January transfer window, and featured against ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu last week as his new club lost 3-0 in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

He initially looked off the pace after joining from Shanghai Shenhua, but the Ivorian is slowly but surely getting back to his best. And this 69th minute goal against Mersin will have done him no harm at all.
