RECIFE, Brazil - Didier Drogba came off the bench to inspire Cote dIvoire to a 2-1 comeback victory over Japan in a World Cup Group C match on Saturday. P.J. Hall Jersey . Drogba, who had been carrying an injury, came on in the 62nd minute when his team was losing 1-0. The talismanic strikers arrival immediately lifted Cote dIvoire team and Wilfried Bony and Gervinho scored with headers two minutes apart. Both goals were set up by curling crosses from defender Serge Aurier. Coach Sabri Lamouchis inspired substitution negated Keisuke Hondas first half goal that had given Japan the lead in a group that also includes Colombia and Greece. Colombia beat Greece 3-0 earlier on Saturday. The 36-year-old former Chelsea star started for Cote dIvoire in the last two World Cups, but neither of those sides made it out of group play. He probably lacks the fitness to play 90 minutes these days, but his impact as a substitute can be dramatic, as was shown on a rainy night in Recife. Now Cote dIvoire is in good shape to advance to the second round for the first time. Next up is Colombia, the group leader by virtue of goal difference. That match is Thursday, as is Japans next test against Greece. Japan had the better of the play in the first half, taking a lead through Hondas hard left-footed strike from about 12 yards in the 16th minute. Yuto Nagatomo slid a pass across the edge of the penalty area to Honda, who settled the ball cleanly with his right foot before belting his 21st career international goal under the cross bar and inside the near post. Japan had several chances to widen its lead in the opening 45 minutes, and will rue missing them. Just minutes after Hondas goal, Japan defender Atsuto Uchida made a run down the right and unloaded a point-blank shot that Cote dIvoire goalkeeper Boubacar Barry parried. Hondas curling shot from the edge of the penalty area soon after forced Barry to make a leaping save. Cote dIvoire dominated the second half but the sluggish-looking team was making little headway until the arrival of Drogba galvanized it. Within minutes, Bonys angled header found the goal and then Gervinho scored with a near post header that goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima should have saved. Japan could not make any impression on Cote dIvoire defence in the remaining 20 minutes. The game marked the World Cup debut for Lamouchi, a 42-year-old Frenchman of Moroccan descent who was widely seen as a surprise hire in 2012. It was also an unpopular move among fans in Cote dIvoire, who favoured a more experienced coach for a team which has been to the previous two World Cups, and which has a number of players who have flourished in Europes top professional leagues.

Wright came to Boston in the Dec. 18 trade that sent guard Rajon Rondo to the Mavericks.The draft pick, originally Minnesotas, is top-12 protected in 2015 and 2016. If the pick is not used by 2016, then the Timberwolves would instead give up their second-round picks in 2016 and 2017.The Suns also waived forward Tony Mitchell, acquired in a trade with Detroit on Dec. 24.Wright was an attractive acquisition partly because he has a $6 million contract that expires after this season.Phoenix has a guard-heavy lineup that can use some inside strength.In a statement announcing the trade, Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said Wrights length, athleticism and finishing ability make him a great fit for our style of play.He is one of the most efficient scorers in the league, McDonough said, and his shot-blocking ability will help anchor our defence.Wright is shooting 72.5 per cent from the fieldd this season. Johnny Townsend Jersey. Last season with Dallas, he averaged career-highs of 9.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 58 games. His shooting percentage last season of 67.7 per cent, also a career high, was the best in the NBA for players with at least 100 field goal attempts.The way Dallas played last year is somewhat similar to what we play — being in the open court and pick and rolls, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. Brandan does a great job of rolling to the basket and catching the ball and either dunking it or hes got a little jumper, so he can shoot it.Hornacek said time will tell how much playing time there will be for Wright.Obviously our starters are the same, the coach said. The bench might be adjusted a little bit, but well see how it goes.Wright is averaging 3.82 blocks per 48 minutes this season. Suns centre Alex Len is averaging 3.77. The pair rank among the top five in that category in the NBA.This is the fifth team for Wright, who was the eighth overall pick out of North Carolina in 2007. He played for Golden State and New Jersey before going to Dallas.Eighth in the Western Conference, the Suns dropped to 22-17 on Friday night with a 100-95 loss at San Antonio. They have won nine of their last 12.
