The Spanish media criticized heavily after Sergio Ramos missed two crucial penalties during their international match against Switzerland this weekend. However, he is not thinking about international retirement according to the inside reports. Recently, Ramos made his 117th appearance for the Spanish international squad as the highest capped player in Spain.
He also surpassed the Italian legend, Gianluigi Buffon, with that feat and became the most capped player in entire Europe. However, his form is now witnessing a declining pattern as he missed two crucial penalties in the 1-1 draw against their Nations League rival, Switzerland. But, he also scored 25 penalties consecutively for both Real Madrid and Spain before he missed these two.

While talking about his game, Ramos said, “If there was another penalty of course that I would take, of course.” He then added, “If I didn’t approach it that way, I would stop being me.” He said, “It is a pride to surpass a legend like Buffon in caps. At the end, when you start you don’t think you can get that high.”
Ramos said, “I have spent many hours running around here through the streets of Seville and there is a lot of effort behind it, perseverance and perseverance. In the end, it is that. As long as I feel like it, I will continue. My head is in charge, and for now, it allows me.” He has been recently linked with his possible transfer to the French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.

While talking about the rumors regarding Ramos, Spanish manager Luis Enrique said, “Everything that is generated around Ramos is neither new, nor old, nor is it anything.” He further said, “It is what it is and what it means to have a player of this level. It is normal that there is pressure around and you have to live with that. If there is someone with enough experience to handle this personal situation it is Sergio Ramos.”
Enrique said, “He is well prepared, and I see him the same as the first day we arrived at the national team, his enthusiasm, his leadership. His face does not change at all and this is part of the things that a footballer should know how to carry.” He then added, “I don’t know if Sergio Ramos is the best penalty taker in the world.”
