Prolific for Clubs, Ain't So For Country..!!

for the past nine months..
we heard it time and time again..
superstars doing what they do best..
playing the beautiful game..

so often we hear..
Drogba!! Brilliant!!..
Messi!! Magical!!..
Ronaldo!! Stunning!!

the world thought that these lads will do the same at this World Cup at least..
but that doesnt seem to be the case..
did the season took its toll??

here are some examples:

Didier Drogba (Chelsea & Ivory Coast)
29 goals, only one

Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich & France)
