Didier Drogba became the first African player to score 50 goals in European competitions last night.

The Chelsea striker notched the fourth goal in a 5-0 Champions League win over German side Schalke as the Blues cruised into the last 16 of Europe's elite competition.

Drogba has broken various impressive records throughout his career. Here's five more achievements that the 36-year-old can put his name to:

1. Most goals in FA Cup finals

Drogba is the only man to score in four FA Cup finals, a quartet which has come over the past eight years where Chelsea have won every single one of those finals.

Think that's impressive? If you incude the semi-finals at Wembley then you'll discover that the Ivory Coast man has eight goals in eight Wembley cup ties.

What a record.

2. 15 goals in 15 matches against Arsenal

In the 1175 minutes that Drogba has played against Arsenal, he has scored on average one goal every 78 minutes and 20 seconds.

Furthermore, his goal to clinch the Emirates Cup for Galatasaray in August 2013 took his astonishing goal record against Arsenal to 15 strikes in 15 matches.

3. 10 finals. 10 goals. 10 trophies.

Whilst Drogba has tasted defeat in African Cup of Nations finals, his record in the biggest games is unrivalled. Notable goals in the 2012 Champions League final, where he scored the equaliser and final penalty against Bayern Munich, combined with trophies in Turkey mean it's 10, 10, 10 for the Ivorian.

2005 Carling Cup final: Liverpool 2 Chelsea 3 (aet)

2007 Carling Cup final: Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2

2007 FA Cup final: Chelsea 1 Manchester United 0

2008 Carling Cup final: Chelsea 1 Tottenham 2

2009 FA Cup final: Chelsea 2 Everton 1

2010 FA Cup final: Chelsea 1 Portsmouth 0

2012 FA Cup final: Chelsea 2 Liverpool 1

2012 Champions League final: Bayern Munich 1 Chelsea 1; Chelsea win 4-3 on penalties

2013 Turkish Super Cup final: Galatasaray 1-0 Fenerbahce

4. Ivory Coast's top scorer, second-leading African scorer

Drogba's 65 international goals make him Ivory Coast's top scorer in their history but he is just three short of the record 68 netted by Egyptian legend Hossam Hassan.

5. World’s top scorer of the 21th century

Handed to him by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS), Drogba's s 92 goals scored in international matches and continental club matches between 2001 and 2012 make him the best out of his peers.
