The Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba believes that the next African Cup of Nations could be the last of his career:

"This may be my last Afcon. Because everyone knows that we will not be rejuvenating. I still have several other trophies to win, but Afcon is from the top list. It has been several years since we are running after it and it would be nice to get to the touch, "said the striker during an interview with France 24.

Didier Drogba explains the particularity of Afcon: "South Africa is very special to me. I went there during the Confederations Cup and I had the opportunity to meet President Nelson Mandela and I did not go back again to the family. During the World Cup in 2010, I was in bad shape and I felt fervor around the selection at each of our meetings. It is true that I cannot wait to be there."
