It has been reported that Didier Drogba broke his arm playing in a friendly with Japan.
This makes me sad as Cote D'Ivoire was going to be my adopted 2nd team after the USMNT. Drogba is one of the few players who can steal a game by himself. He was the reason that Ivory Coast has the best chance of any African team to get out of the group stage.
Hopefully he can still play (I don't know if there's any precedent for broken arms while playing soccer) but if he doesn't it pretty much negates any "group of death" arguments.
