Former India cricket captain Virat Kohli has backed star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo after Portugal exited the ongoing FIFA World Cup on Saturday (December 10). With Portugal’s elimination from the tournament, Ronaldo’s career is likely to end without a World Cup trophy. The star Portugal player, now 37, was seen in tears on Saturday and received a lot of support from the fans.

Virat Kohli’s support for Ronaldo

“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,” posted Virat on his Instagram handle.

Ronaldo’s withdrawal from the tournament meant that he would most likely miss out on winning the World Cup because he will be 41 when the tournament returns to the United States in 2026. The five-time Champions League winner did not start any of his team’s knockout stage matches, instead serving as a substitute for coach Fernando Santos.

While the star footballer has been struggling with his form, Virat has excelled in his role and was seen celebrating his 72nd ODI tonne against Bangladesh on Saturday. Virat moved into second place in the international rankings for most hundreds, passing Ricky Ponting, who had 71 hundred.

As India prepares for the World Cup, the former India captain, like Ronaldo, could play his final World Cup match in the ODI format next year. But, unlike Ronaldo, Virat did win a World Cup in 2011, when India defeated Sri Lanka in the final.

While the world’s attention is focused on Ronaldo’s failure, Lionel Messi is quietly going about his business, as Argentina advances to the quarterfinals and will face Croatia on Tuesday evening. Not only Ronaldo, but Virat’s close friend and England captain Harry Kane also had a disappointing exit as England lost to France.
