Didier Drogba insists he will never turn his back on the Ivory Coast despite missing out on their latest squad.

The 32-year-old Chelsea striker has earned 71 caps for the Elephants and bagged 45 goals in the process, but has not been selected for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifier with Rwanda.

This comes after the powerful forward missed Ivory Coast's friendly against Italy at Upton Park last month.

New coach Francois Zahoui believes that Drogba is 'not psychologically ready to play the game', and it remains to be seen if he still has a future with the national side.

However, the African star says that he will always be available for selection if called upon.

He told TF1: "Each time they call me up, I'll be there."
