It is a promising start to the youngster’s professional career, which has taken a while to get going.

Initially part of Chelsea’s academy, Drogba was released in 2018.

He followed in his father’s footsteps by signing for Guingamp – the team where the 43-year-old scored 17 Ligue 1 goals in 2002-03.

Drogba was released last summer without making a single appearance, but he was given a chance to kick-start his career by the Italian minnows in February.

He went on to make his professional debut the same month.

If the youngster emulates just a fraction of what his old man did on the pitch, he’ll have some career.

The former Chelsea man enjoyed a stellar career, winning four Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2012.

But his son is a long way from the top.

Unlike England’s fourth tier – League Two – there are 166 teams in Serie D battling across nine sub-divisions.

The winners of each sub-division are promoted to Serie C, where 60 teams compete across three leagues.

If Drogba continues scoring, though, it won’t be long until bigger teams take notice.
