Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba was tonight waiting to hear from FIFA whether or not he will be allowed to play against Portugal tomorrow afternoon wearing a protective cast.

The Chelsea frontman trained with his team-mates at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this evening as manager Sven-Goran Eriksson revealed he was waiting to hear from officials if Drogba can wear a lightweight dressing on his fractured arm.

Eriksson said: "There has been a FIFA meeting today and the people haven't come back yet. We will know later."
