VIDEO: Drogba leads the Ivory Coast past Tanzania; Egypt squeeze past Mali in a friendly

Tanzania 0 – Ivory Coast 1 (International Friendly, January 5, 2010) Didier Drogba left Tanzanian defenders in his wake in the 37th minute when the Chelsea forward rose high to meet an Emmanuel Eboue cross and powerfully planted a header past the helpless Stars’ goalkeeper Muharami Mohammed.

Mali 0 – Egypt 1 (International Friendly, January 4, 2010) Mohamed Nagi Gedo’s speculative effort midway through the second half gave the Pharaohs a boost ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations which starts on Friday. Ex-Spurs midfielder Hossam Ghaly was sent off late on for Egypt.
