You heard it here first (ok, probably 2nd or 3rd or 256th):

Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba was named 2006 African Footballer of the Year on Thursday, edging out Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o.
Drogba, 28, took the honor for the first time after captaining his country to the African Nations Cup final in Egypt.
Ivory Coast also reached the finals of the World Cup for the first time last year while Drogba won the Premiership title with Chelsea.
His Chelsea team mate Michael Essien finished third for the second successive year in the poll of Africa's 53 national team coaches.

Shows you what I know about football. Still trying to learn, folks ... bear with me.
