The 34-year-old says the Elephants will work hard to ensure the 2013 Afcon does not elude them after consistently disappointing their fans in the last four editions.
Ivory Coast striker, Didier Drogba says his main aim now is to win the 2013 Afcon title in South Africa.
The 34-year-old will be making his fifth attempt at the title in January with the 1992 champions.
In the previous attempts, Drogba helped the Ivoirians to reach the final in 2006 and 2012 but lost out to Egypt and Zambia respectively.
The two-time African best player might be playing his final Afcon in 2013 and as a result is bent on winning something with the Ivorian Golden age who have been perennial under achievers.
“I want to win the Africa Cup of Nations competition.
“I’m not the only one but we’ll rise and begin to work hard.
“We’re going there and let’s see what 2013 will bring to us.
“It will be great to win and we must work towards it,” the Shanhgai Shenhua striker told reporters.
The Ivorian striker had an eventful 2011-2012 season after scoring the equalizer and winning penalty to give Chelsea the European Champions League title and missed a penalty in 2012 Afcon final during regulation time.
His goals took Ivory Coast to the finals where they finished up second to Zambia.
