Former Cote d’Ivoire international Didier Drogba and Egypt international Mido have reunited at the 2018 Fifa World Cup opening ceremony in Russia.
The duo lit up the French Ligue 1 with 26 goals between them in the 2003-04 season, thus, guiding the Olympians to the final of the Uefa Europa League in the 2003-04 season where they lost 2-0 to Valencia.
14 years after they both played together at the Stade Velodrome outfit, Mido and the two-time African Footballer of the Year joined other football legends to see Russia defeat Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the first game of the2018 World Cup.
