The parade of former stars popping in for a visit at Chelsea continued on Saturday as the legendary Didier Drogba stopped by for a visit with “his people”. Nice to see Cesc make time in his busy showering schedule to pose for the snap. Meanwhile, Willian was so excited to see his former teammate, he even forgot to put on pants! But at least his hair won’t get cold. Jokes aside, lovely to see Didier back at Cobham, even if it is just for a visit rather than the long-rumored return to the club as an ambassador or coach or mentor or whathaveya. Drogba has been without a club since leaving Montreal Impact at the end of the MLS season in December, but he’s recently been linked with moves to Brazil

In a curious twist even for this occasionally erratic soccer tournament, the African Cup of Nations was targeted by hackers on Saturday, with a group claiming to be Russian saying they had "taken down" the tournament's official website in a protest against what they called host country Gabon's dictatorial president. The Confederation of African Football's site was not working when Ghana became the second team at the tournament after Senegal to qualify for the quarterfinals with a narrow 1-0 win over Mali. Egypt, returning to the African Cup after missing the last three, then beat Uganda 1-0 with an 89th-minute goal from Abdallah Said to be the team best-placed to join Ghana in the quarterfinals from Group D.
