Drogba loses USL Cup final with Phoenix Rising in what could be his last game

Didier Drogba has lost what could be the final game of his career, as Phoenix Rising were beaten 1-0 by Louisville City FC in the United Soccer League Cup final.

The former Chelsea striker, 40, has said this will be his last season.

In April 2017, Drogba became player-co-owner of Phoenix Rising in the second tier of US football.

Fellow owner Berke Bakay thanked him for his “amazing contributions to the beautiful sport” after Friday’s loss.
