While Ronaldo stole the show in Saudi Arabia, we look back at the time when yet another GOAT of his own game shut down the critics for pointing fingers at his inspiration.
None other than Virat Kohli, has recently come hard on critics for questioning Ronaldo’s integrity after the latter scored twice to cancel out strikes from Lionel Messi and Marquinhos in the first-half, during Paris Saint-Germain vs Riyadh XI.
“Still doing it at the highest level at 38. The football experts sitting and criticising him every week for attention are conveniently quiet now that he is putting in this kind of performance against one of the top clubs in the world. And he was apparently finished,” Kohli wrote in his Instagram post.
Notably, Ronaldo was adjudged Man of the Match for his incredible performance in the match. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is in his own zone and scripting history with every game he is playing. While Kohli is currently playing against Australia in a four-match Test series, Ronaldo will play the next game against Al-Taawoun on February 17.
