Cape Town - Chelsea legend Didier Drogba speaks to Sport24 on his epic playing career in the Champions League that includes scoring a match-winning penalty to lift the trophy.

The 40-year-old lifted the Champions League trophy in dramatic fashion after putting in a colossal performance to drag Chelsea to victory over Bayern Munich in 2012.

With the Blues trailing Bayern 1-0 in the dying moments of the game Drogba scored a late equaliser - with a trademark header - in the 88th minute before scoring the decisive penalty in a penalty shoot-out.

Speaking as part of the Heineken "Share the Drama" campaign Drogba reveals his fondest moments in Europe’s prestigious Cup competition and his emotions during that unforgettable night at the Allianz Arena.
