Drogba not in starting XI for Ivory Coast

FIFA has cleared Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba to play with a protective cast on his broken right arm. Sven-Goran Eriksson hasn't cleared him to start, though.

Drobga will begin the Ivory Coast's match against Portugal on the bench. He broke his arm in a friendly against Japan 11 days ago, but returned to training determined to compete in this World Cup.

It's unclear exactly what role the Chelsea striker will play in Tuesday's match.

Do you think the Ivory Coast can defeat Portugal or get out of the Group of Death without Drogba? Share your thoughts below.
