World Cup 2018 By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 10/07/2018

Former Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba has consoled Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera after a sad occurrence before the second final clash against France in the World Cup.

Muslera was in deep pain and sorrow following the deaths of his family members, his uncle and his grandmother days before his error in the 2-0 defeat against France in the World Cup.

The Galatasaray shot-stopper fumbled against Antoine Griezmann’s shot during the quarter-final clash, which resulted in France's second goal and eventually led to Uruguay exit in the tournament.

The Uruguay keeper lost his uncle in a car accident a week ago while his grandmother died two days before the match against Les Bleus.

Drogba and Muslera played together at Galatasaray and he sent a message to the goalkeeper and the family.

 “We are humans, after all, stay strong Nando Muslera. One of the very best I’ve played with. Hugs and condolences to the family,” Drogba wrote Instagram.
