With nagging injuries, heavy marking from opponents and some simply uninspired play, the top stars of the 2018 World Cup have struggled to deliver on the impossible expectations they carried into the tournament, with one prominent Portuguese exception.Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo, who has all four of Portugal's goals in their two games, many of the biggest names are off to a shaky start.During Brazil's opening 1-1 draw with Switzerland, the 26-year-old was fouled 10 times, the highest number on a single player in a single match since the 1998 World Cup, when England's Alan Shearer took 11 challenges against Tunisia.It's early, and the tournament has seen plenty of stellar play from lesser-known players, but it's clear the star scorers are struggling.
