Drogba makes immediate impact in China
Shenhua were struggling in the first half after conceding a goal by Brazilian defender Moises in the 21st minute. However, Drogba's entry instantly transformed their fortunes in their away game.
Drogba entered the field at half time, almost scoring with his first touch of the ball in the 52nd minute late Sunday.
The Ivory Coast striker in the 68th minute made an exquisite through ball which found Shanghain playmaker Cao Yunding, who rounded the keeper to equalise.
The match was notable for being the first time Drogba and Nicolas Anelka - who were Chelsea teammates - have played together at Shenhua. Anelka sealed a 175000 pounds a week move from Chelsea last December.
Drogba joined his former team mate after signing a deal which reports suggest is worth 200000 pounds a week, making him the highest-paid player in China and in the top bracket globally.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
