Sergio Ramos has now scored more international goals than some legendary footballers

Spain v Sweden - UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier

The International break may have halted club football, but there's still plenty of games for fans to get their teeth into this week. 

England host Bulgaria at Wembley on Saturday night, with Gareth Southgate's team looking to continue their 100% Euro 2020 qualifying record. 

The Three Lions aren't the only nation who have managed to maintain a perfect record so far though. 

Spain sit top of qualifying Group F, with a maximum of 15 points from five games. But they had a bit of a scare against Romania on Thursday night. 

La Furia Roja secured a 2-1 win thanks to a sensational last-minute save from Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Chelsea goalkeeper denied striker George Puscas a 91st-minute equaliser, saving a header from point-blank range with his legs. 

It's widely suggested that Kepa will be keeping David de Gea out of the Spain team for the foreseeable future. 

The Blues 'keeper many have been the hero for keeping his country's lead intact but without goals from Sergio Ramos and Paco Alcacer, they wouldn't have had one to defend. 


Once again, the captain got himself on the scoresheet, converting a penalty in the 29th minute. 

Seeing Ramos score for Spain is not really a shock anymore - he now has 21 to his name - not bad for a defender. 

That statistic is even more impressive when it's compared to a number of legendary footballers. 


Thanks to his latest goal, Ramos has now scored more times on the international stage than the likes of David Beckham, Francesco Totti, Franck Ribéry, Philippe Coutinho and Carlos Tevez.

That's a brilliant record for anyone to hold, let alone a centre-back.

Ramos will have plenty of chances to add even more goals to his record over the coming season, which sees Spain complete their Euro 2020 qualifying group.


With the former World Champions in pole position, he'll likely be captaining his nation at the tournament next summer too, which begins on Friday, June 12.
