Drogba leads his country into the 2013 tournament this week, hoping to make it third time lucky after losing in two finals on penalties in the last four editions.
“We have a team capable of great things at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations,” said the former Chelsea forward.
“It would be great to win the trophy now. Honestly, we are getting tired of losing out each time.
“We showed great solidarity against Senegal (in the qualifiers). We fought together, everybody gave of himself and this helped us to win.
“And now everybody expects a trophy. We hope to give the cup to our country.”
