Didier Drogba Decided to Tackle the Goalie, American Football-Style (Video)

Didier Drogba

It’s, uh, a little hard to determine what was going on here. Well, the actions are clear enough. Didier Drogba tackled a goalie (soccer-style), then followed up with another tackle (American football-style). However, it’s not clear why he did that. Once the ball had been cleared, is there any sense in taking down the goalie with an ankle tackle?

Didier Drogba is 37 years old, so there’s probably a lot about the sport he understands that I don’t, so maybe he was just playing to his vast knowledge and I’m not getting it.

The goalie’s reaction is the same reaction anyone else would have: frustration and disbelief. Whatever. Just put some of that magic spray on it and get back out there.
