Super goal from the super-sub

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a wild and crazy past few months for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. After the 38-year-old teased us with rumors about retirement and coaching for the Blues, he finally decided to stick it out in MLS for one more season with the Montreal Impact. However, instead of going in with both feet, he decided to boycott any and all action played on artificial turf.

Now a month and a half into the MLS season and only one substitute appearance to his name, Drogba finally made his presence known on Saturday night. Entering the Impact's match with the Chicago Fire in the 50th minute with his side down 1-0, it took Drogba all of five minutes to completely alter the proceedings.

In typical Didier fashion, he finished this exquisite backheel goal to level the match at 1 giving his club momentum to go on and grab a late match-winner in stoppage time.

It'll never get old seeing the man score amazing goals no matter what shirt he's wearing. Thankfully we get at least one more season of these spectacular moments.

For him, it should be a breath of fresh air to get back on the field and on the scoresheet as he's currently facing some negative publicity regarding his charity's financial dealings.
