Following Portugal’s elimination from the FIFA World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo posted an emotional Instagram message. Former India cricket captain Virat Kohli, a huge fan of the football legend, praised CR7 shortly after. No trophy or victory, in Kohli’s opinion, can undo the good he has done for the sport and for fans all over the world.
“No trophy or any title can take anything away from what you’ve done in this sport and for sports fans around the world. No title can explain the impact you’ve had on people and what I and so many around the world feel when we watch you play. That’s a gift from god. A real blessing to a man who plays his heart out every single time and is the epitome of hard work and dedication and a true inspiration for any sportsperson. You are for me the greatest of all time,” Kohli wrote on Instagram.
“Winning a World Cup for Portugal was the biggest and most ambitious dream of my career. Fortunately, I won many titles of international dimension, including Portugal, but putting our country’s name on the highest foot in the World was my biggest dream. I fought for it . I fought hard for this dream. In the 5 appearances I scored in World Cups over 16 years, always by the side of great players and supported by millions of Portuguese, I gave my all. Leave it all out on the field. I never turned my face to the fight and I never gave up on that dream,” wrote Ronaldo on his Instagram page.
