LONDON - Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba plans to live up to his reputation as the man for the big occasion by out-gunning his rivals for the World Cup golden boot.

Drogba is already well established as Chelsea's talisman on football's grandest stages after his seventh goal in six cup final appearances clinched a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth in this season's FA Cup final. Now the 32-year-old striker believes he is capable of emulating those heroics with his country in South Africa.
