Drobga skips Ivory Coast practice to visit doctors

sports Updated: Jun 12, 2010 18:13 IST

Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba has missed a World Cup training session with his teammates to receive further treatment on his broken arm.

A spokesman said the striker missed Saturday's session to visit team doctors.

Drogba is hoping to be fit for Ivory Coast's opening World Cup match against Portugal in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday after having broken his arm in a friendly against Japan on June 4. He had surgery a day later.

Drogba trained with the team the past two days, but wore a protective cast as he worked on his ball skills and fitness.
