Didier Drogba insists he is not in the twilight of his Ivory Coast career and hopes to play at the 2014 World Cup.

The 32-year-old Chelsea striker has earned more than 70 caps for the Elephants and insists there is no way his appearance in a friendly against Mali in midweek was a farewell.

Drogba would be 36 by the time the Brazil tournament in 2014 comes into view but he has ambitions of bowing out on the biggest stage of all.

He said: "I could not leave like that (against Mali). The day I decide to retire internationally, I will take care to say goodbye to the fans. I would never creep away on tiptoes.

"I'm not in the twilight of my career with the Ivory Coast. I intend to participate in the next two African Nations Cups in 2012 and 2013.

"I'll also play my third World Cup in 2014 in Brazil. If I am called upon, I will answer."
