The Indian skipper also recalled Champions League match between Juventus and Atletico Madrid where Ronaldo had netted a hat-trick to take his side through.
In the 2018-19 season of the Champions League, Juventus were trailing 2-0 after the first leg against Atletico Madrid. However, in the second leg, the 35-year-old scored a hat trick to hand Juventus a 3-0 victory.
"What stood out was he went to Juventus and it was a Champions League match against Atletico Madrid. They lost 2-0 (in the first leg). For a guy to say, two days prior to the game, all his friends who come into the game, it is going to be a special night. The conviction for that guy to say that we are going to go through and score a hat-trick and take them through, that to me is a beast mentality," Kohli said.
