Who has dropped the ball? The referee?! If the referee drops the ball after he interrupted the game the ball is in play when the ball touches the ground. It isn't allowed to score a goal directly from a dropped ball, two players have to touch the ball before the goal counts.

Really if it was a dropped ball it should only bounce once and then the soccer players kick it to win possession for there team.
