Indian batter and former skipper Virat Kohli extended support to Portugal’s star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo after his unceremonious exit from the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Morocco became the first African and Arab country to reach the tournament’s semi-finals with a 1-0 victory over Portugal on Saturday night.
The 37-year-old Portuguese star faced criticism after his side’s dismal show in the knockout stage. Ronaldo couldn’t control his tears at the final whistle and left the pitch as this was also his last World Cup.
Being an athlete and one of the biggest supporters of star footballer, Kohli must have felt the pressure Ronaldo was going through. “No trophy or any title can take anything away from what you’ve done in this sport and for sports fans around the world,” wrote Kohli who left India’s all-formats captaincy following immense criticism on his leadership.
