Drogba jokes that 'holy water' caused Phoenix' comeback

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 449

Didier Drogba jested that he must have drunk ''holy water'' after taking a quick drink break that kickstarted Phoenix Rising's comeback against LA Galaxy II.

Phoenix were trailing 3-2 behind Galaxy before Drogba catalysed a turn-around in their luck. Whilst waiting to take a corner, the striker grabbed a sip of water from a bottle provided by two children standing pitchside. 

Almost immediately afterwards, Drogba's corner kick met with Jason Johnson's head to equalise for Phoenix, and the former Ivory Coast international celebrated by pouring the remainder over his head.

Phoenix then went on to claim victory following a 78-minute penalty from Drogba. The 40-year-old posted on social media after the match to joke that he must have taken a sip of ''holy water'' to launch the comeback.
