The Ivory Coast sealed their qualification for the 2014 World Cup with a 1-1 draw in the second leg of their playoff against Senegal, putting the aggregate score at 4-2. But before Salomon Kalou scored the Ivory Coast's goal in the fourth minute of injury time, Didier Drogba once again came through for his country with an overhead clearance at the goal line.

Defending a cross from the corner, Drogba's quick reaction saved the ensuing header from sneaking past the Ivory Coast's keeper and throwing their World Cup hopes into doubt. So he's ended a civil war, built hospitals and now saved his country from possibly missing out on the World Cup. There is nothing Didier Drogba cannot do.
