The Ivorian Football Federation has said that Didier Drogba will be rejoining the Ivory Coast World Cup squad after a successful surgery on his fractured ulna.
The Chelsea striker injured his arm during a friendly game against Japan on Friday and had a weekend operation in Berne. Doctors described the operation as successful. Drogba's recovery has been encouraging and at this point, the team is very hopeful that he can join them as soon as possible. It remains unclear however, if Drogba will be fit to play in the opening match against Portugal.
