Expectations knock on anyone’s mind before any tournament or any competition. Fans have a strong belief in their favorite players, hoping to end up with a big smile. But it hurts when the so-called heroes deceive you. Today, we will go through the top 5 players who came as heroes and left as cowards in the 2018 World Cup.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
Despite recording a hat-trick on the first match and finishing with four goals, Cristiano disappeared when he was needed most. All eyes were on Ronaldo, expecting him to rescue Portugal from Edinson Cavani and Uruguay hunters. Sadly, the goal machine couldn’t and their journey ended in the last of 16.
4. Robert Lewandowski
Whenever Bayern Munich has Lewandowski onboard, victory is not an issue. That feeling remains the same when the forward is in Poland national team. Robert carried Poland to the World Cup in Russia, hoping to make it out of the group stage at least. Disappointingly, all Lewando could do was scoring zero goals and zero assists, helping his national team go back home early.

Joachim Low took him to Russia for that job. Unexpectedly, the 2014 World Cup champions couldn’t make it out of the group stage. The funniest _ and also disappointing _ part of it is that Germany lost every match in which Ozil played.
