Film: Didier Drogba & The Ivorian Civil War On 'Football Rebels'
Watch the first documentary from Aljazeera's Football Rebels series on Didier Drogba and the Ivorian civil war.
Ivorian footballer Didier Drogba, a Chelsea FC legend and all-around world class striker, is the subject of the first episode of Aljazeera's Football Rebels — a five-part documentary series hosted by Eric Cantona (you remember) on "five football heroes whose social consciences led them to use their fame and influence to challenge unjust regimes, join opposition movements and lead the fight for democracy and human rights in their countries." The 25-minute documentary follows Didier (and his father) back home, where he speaks on being Bété, helping the Ivory Coast team qualify for the 2006 world cup and challenging President Gbagbo to end the civil war.
