He may be nearing 40 years of age, but Didier Drogba is as strong as ever.

The Chelsea and Ivory Coast great scored a stunning free kick for Phoenix Rising in the United Soccer League (USL) on Saturday.

Since joining the Rising as a player and co-owner in April, Drogba had scored four goals.

But the 39-year-old took his tally to five with a bullet of a set-piece in the 13th minute to leave the LA Galaxy's reserve goalkeeper Clement Diop helpless as the ball riffled into the top corner of the net.

Age is clearly just a number, and class is certainly permanent.
