Drogba spearheaded Montreal’s late-season playoff push by scoring four goals in five matches in October, including a two-minute brace in the Impact’s crucial 2-1 win versus rival Toronto FC on #DecisionDay. The former Ivorian international accounted for 66 percent of Montreal’s scoring output during the month of October and became the club’s leading goal scorer on the season with 11 tallies in 11 games. He claims his second consecutive Etihad Airways MLS Player of the Month award, joining Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco as the only players to win the honor multiple times this season.
With Montreal eyeing the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference on #DecisionDay, Drogba delivered his best performance of the month. The striker scored nearly identical back-heel goals in the 54th (watch goal) and 55th (watch goal) minutes – with the former earning an AT&T Goal of the Week nomination – which secured a home match for the Impact in the Knockout Round of the Audi 2015 MLS Cup Playoffs.
Drogba will look to maintain his electric form when the Montreal Impact host Toronto FC at Stade Saputo in the knockout match on Thursday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m. ET (UniMás, UDN, TSN1, TSN4, TSN5, RDS, MLS LIVE).
