John Terry pays tribute to teammate Didier Drogba after the striker's winner over Barcelona.

Chelsea captain John Terry has heaped praise on striker Didier Drogba following the Ivorian's winning goal in the Champions League semi-final first leg.

Drogba struck the winner on a Blues' counter-attack just moments before half time which proved to be the only goal in a memorable win against tournament favourites Barcelona for the Londoners.

Terry said: "We had to be very patient, I don't think we touched the ball for the first 15 minutes but from Didi on his own up front, the midfield and defence, it was a great team performance.

"Didi is all about these big nights, the big occasions. He put fear into the Spurs defence at the weekend and he did that again tonight.

"He was up there on his own against some of best defenders in world and he did it brilliantly."

The second leg takes place at the Nou Camp on Tuesday next week.
