Didier Drogba came off the bench to score two late goals in a 2-1 victory against Arsenal for Galatasaray to win the Emirates Cup on Sunday.

One of Arsenal’s biggest foes during his years at Chelsea, Drogba came back to haunt the Gunners again. He sealed victory for his side in the 88th minute when he collected a pass into the box from Wesley Sneijder, dribbled past Per Mertesacker and struck the ball home.

He brought Galatasaray level only nine minutes earlier when he converted a penalty after being pushed down by Bacary Sagna.

Arsenal dominated play in the first half and scored in the 39th minute when Theo Walcott’s cross cut through the defense and surprised goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Galatasaray finished the competition with nine points, ahead of FC Porto with six and Arsenal and Napoli with four.
