Morocco shattered Cristiano Ronaldo’s FIFA World Cup hopes on Saturday as they beat Portugal 1-0 in a quarter-final victory. Ronaldo only had one trophy missing from his illustrious cabinet of awards – the World Cup. And with Portugal making one of their best ever runs at the World Cup this year, the hopes of Ronaldo and Portugal’s long wait finally coming to an end were slowly starting to take shape. Until Youssef En-Nesri’s physics-defending stunner in the first half that turned out to be the only difference in the match. Former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli later took to Twitter to share a detailed post on Ronaldo, calling him the “greatest of all time”.
Kohli took to Instagram on Monday, a day after Portugal’s heartbreaking loss, to praise Ronaldo for the impact he has had on the game and fans around the world and said no trophy or title can take that away from him.

“No trophy or any title can diminish anything 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 I and When many people around the world feel.” We see you playing. It is a gift from God. A real blessing to have a man who plays his heart out every single time and is the epitome of hard work and dedication and a true inspiration to any sportsperson. You are my greatest time. @Cristiano,” Kohli wrote alongside a picture of Ronaldo.
Speaking of the World Cup, Morocco have become the first team from Africa to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup, where they will now face defending champions France. Meanwhile, Lionel Messi’s Argentina will face 2018 runners-up Croatia in the first semi-final.
