Group of Death Update

OMFG! Didier Drogba OUT of the World Cup!

“Ow, my elbow!”

Didier Drogba

If you happen to be holidaying in Portugal today, chances are that your lunchtime platter of small sausages was temporarily forgotten thanks to a strange noise that sounded like a few million Cristiano Ronaldo fans all sighing in unison. The Group of Death, it seems, has just got rather less morbid.

The word coming from all of the most vital sports reporting websites is that Didier Drogba is out of the World Cup, thanks to a broken elbow, caused by a particularly physical challenge from Japan defender Tulio during a warm up match.

Hence, you mightn’t be surprised to note that the Ivory Coast hitman’s odds of topscoring in the competition have dropped dramatically from 39/1 on Betfair, to something more like 200/1.

An emotional Sven said this:

“Yes, I’m worried, of course I am.”

    In the words of Nelson Muntz:

    A highly emotional Sven it seems.

    guess karma finally caught up with him after all his diving. surprised he hadn’t injured himself before like this with all his ridiculous oscar-winning dives. too bad, though. despite his stupid acting, he’s a great player.
