10. Didier Drogba
Sure, Drogba was widely considered to be one of the best footballers of the modern era, and there was no questioning of his skills and abilities, but whenever there would be tournaments such as the World Cup, Drogba’s contributions and form would often go unnoticed because of teams that were much stronger than Ivory Coast. Had Drogba been a part of other nation’s football squads such as Spain or Portugal, then he would have become much more popular in the footballing world. But that shouldn’t matter even a bit for him because he is the most respected personality in his own country and is very important to his nation.
