Chelsea legend Didier Drogba opened his 2016 Major League Soccer scoring account with a cheeky backheel as Montreal Impact beat Chicago Fire 2-1 on Saturday.
After sitting out the first five games of the MLS season to avoid playing on artificial pitches – as a precaution for his ongoing knee problems – the Ivorian took just six minutes to score after coming off the bench, and did so in style.
Chicago opened the scoring in the 29th minute through Kennedy Igboananike, but Drogba, who came on as a second-half substitute, grabbed an equaliser in the 56th minute when he converted Dominic Oduro's low cross with a calm backheel flick.
"In the second half, we played with more rhythm and created more chances," Drogba said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
"We're top of the conference, and we have to show more ambition on the road. This win does us a lot of good."
Impact midfielder Ignacio Piatti scored the winner for the Canadian side, curling home a goal in stoppage time to give the Eastern Conference leaders a second straight victory.
Drogba scored 11 goals in 11 regular-season games last year for the Montreal Impact.
