My 8 year old daughter thinks that none of her friends like her

My 8 year old daughter tells me that her friends do like to play with her and she is left alone in recess time.  I dont understand why, I am really disturbed since she is upset.  What do I do?

Perhaps she is shy.. sometimes it takes the child to make an attempt at friendship, so speak to her and tell her to ask them something maybe about games or toys if she breaks the ice she will make friends if she is waiting for them well it may not happen ot take a while .perhaps she could suggest a game to play in the lunch break.
