WORLD CUP 2014
The Elephants will face Colombia, Greece and Japan in Group C, which appears to be a much easier draw than in their two previous appearances at the tournament. Unlucky 2006 and 2010 group draws resulted in the West Africans finishing third behind Argentina and the Netherlands in Germany and third behind Brazil and Portugal in South Africa.
Former Chelsea star Drogba, 36, is confident his side will do better this time. "Competing at the previous two tournaments was very difficult," said the Galatasaray player. "We have a realistic chance to do better in Brazil and get past the first round."
Côte d'Ivoire is one of the five african teams who will participate at the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
