Virat Kohli penned an emotional note for Cristiano Ronaldo, saying that no trophy can take anything away from what the veteran forward has done for football.

The 37-year-old Ronaldo’s World Cup dream ended as Portugal crashed out of the 2022 tournament after suffering a 0-1 defeat against Morocco in the quarter-final match.

Kohli further said that Ronaldo is a “gift from god” and called him the “greatest of all time”.

“No trophy or any title can take anything away from what you have done in this sport and for sports fans around the world. No title can explain the impact you have had on people and what I and so many around the world feel when we watch you play,” Kohli said in an Instagram post.

“That is 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.”

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo arrived in Qatar to play in his fifth World Cup and with a mission to make a difference for Portugal. In the quarter-final match, Ronaldo came in as a substitute in the second half but could not provide an equaliser to Youssef En-Nesyri’s goal for Morocco.

Following the defeat, Ronaldo expressed his emotions on social media and said: “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.

“Sadly yesterday the dream ended the heat is not worth reacting. I just want you all to know that much has been said, much has been written, much has been speculated, but my dedication to Portugal hasn’t changed for a moment. I was always one fighting for the objective of all and I would never turn my back on my colleagues and my country.

“Not much more to say for now. Thank you Portugal. Thank you Qatar The dream was nice while it lasted… Now, it’s hoping that the weather will be good advisor and allow each one to draw their own conclusions.”
