Drogba looking good for World Cup start

7:33 am on 15 June 2010

Ivory Coast's World Cup football captain Didier Drogba continues to make a rapid recovery from a broken forearm and might even play in his team's opening game against Portugal tomorrow.

Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson sounded optimistic about Drogba's fitness for the match, little more than a week after surgery, but he says no decision will be made until a couple of hours before kick-off.
