Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba picked up a right arm injury which forced him off the pitch during a pre-World Cup friendly against Japan in Sion today, an AFP reporter said.

The Chelsea striker picked up the knock 16 minutes into the game after clashing with Brazilian-born Japanese defender Marcus Tulio Tanaka. He was replaced by CSKA Moscow forward Seydou Doumbia.

Drogba helped open the scoring in favour of the Africans three minutes earlier, taking a free kick which was deflected in off Tanaka.
