Futbol: No country for old men? Don’t tell that to Drogba

Team USA midfielder Julian Green is 19 years old. Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is 20. Raphaël Varane, a French defender, is also 19. Portugal’s William Carvalho is a wee 22.

It’s often said the football, particularly at the World Cup level, is increasingly a young man’s game.

Didier Drogba hasn’t gotten the memo.

The Cote d’Ivoirian international, who is appearing in his third World Cup, turned 36 in March and is still going strong. Now playing for Galatarasary after a notable career with Chelsea, Drogba is expected bring poise and experience to the Elephants’ bid to make it beyond the group stage to the tournament’s knockout round (which the team has never done).

Mind you, Drogba isn’t the oldest player in the World Cup by a long stretch (that honor belongs to Cameroon’s Roger Milla).

Here’s one example of the African’s exuberance at recent pre-tournament exhibition match against El Salvador:

    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
