Didier Drogba's still got it.

The Chelsea legend might not have the pace he once had, but he's once again proven his eye for goal and control are second to none with a screamer for Montreal Impact.

It's the third time the Ivorian has scored from a free-kick this season. Granted, the goalkeeper probably deserves a bit of a talking to after letting the ball get past him, but there looked to be considerable pace and swerve on Drogba's hit nonetheless.

In fact, from a difficult angle, it's pretty impressive how the strike managed to deceive the 'keeper and find the top corner.

It wasn't enough, though, as his side were undone by another familiar face now plying his trade in the MLS.

Former Real Madrid and AC Milan star Kaka scored a brace to help Orlando City to a 4-1 win, but at least Drogba gave the hosts something memorable to go away with.

Free-kick marvel

Take a look at his goal here:

Montreal may sit bang in the middle of the MLS table right now, but at least the former Premier League star is doing his best to stamp some of his magic on his team-mates.

The 38-year-old has found the back of the net 21 times since moving to Canada after finishing his second spell at Chelsea last year.

This season, he's got nine in 18 appearances, with a further three assists, so it's no wonder he's in rush to hang up his boots just yet.
