Didier Drogba and Premier League players caught up in Senegal riot

The former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and seven Premier League players were caught up in a riot as Senegal's Africa Cup of Nations tie with Ivory Coast in Dakar was abandoned after police fired teargas inside the packed stadium when thousands of fans lit fires and threw rubbish in protest at the home team's show.

The rioting forced the referee to abandon the second-leg qualifying tie with 20 minutes left and Ivory Coast leading 2-0 thanks to two goals from Drogba, the second from the penalty spot.
