LA Galaxy coach Mike Munoz was very impressed with the free kick.

He was a world class player in his day, I thought we did a decent job in neutralizing him for the most part - but obviously the free kick was top shelf and sometimes you just have to tip your hat,” Munoz said.

Drogba joined Phoenix Rising in April 2017, becoming a part owner.
