Orange, hand screen-printed, artist t-shirt featuring legendary Ivorian footballer Didier Drogba. Created by Carolyn Castano. Selected by Africa is a Country. (MENS)

THE FOOTBALLER

Tébily Didier Yves Drogba is the cure. Ivory Coast national team captain and its all-time leading scorer. Chelsea legend, voted the club's G.O.A.T. (GREATEST OF ALL TIME) by supporters in 2012. Most expensive Ivorian player in history. Chelsea's first league title in 50 years comes in Drogba's first season in 2004. Another Premier League title in year two. 33 goals, Premier League Golden Boot, winning goals in League Cup and FA Cup finals, 2006-2007. Glory, beauty, honor. Only player in history to score in four FA Cup Finals. Drogba is the cure.

African Footballer of the Year, 2006, 2009. United Nations Good Will Ambassador. October 2005, delivers first World Cup qualification to Ivory Coast ever AND a plea to end ongoing civil war. "Ivorians, men and women, from the north and the south, the center and the west, you've seen this," says Drogba. "We've proved to you that the people of Ivory Coast can live together side by side, play together toward the same goal: qualifying for the World Cup. We promised you this celebration would bring the people together. Now we're asking you to make this a reality. Please, let's all kneel." A truce is declared soon after that lasts through 2006 Cup campaign. Drogba is the cure.

In 2013, Drogba, now with Turkish team Galatasaray Instagrams a message of support to the protestors in Taskim Square and Gezi Park: "kalbim sizinle," my heart is with you. Soon after that, this graffito appears all over Instabul: “Çare Drogba.” The cure is Drogba.

Drogba's number in 2013, 12, appears on the back. The logo our our partners, Africa is a Country, appears on a sleeve.
