Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos produced a no-look backheel tackle in Spain v Switzerland


Spain continued their Nations League campaign with a narrow 1-0 victory over Switzerland on Saturday night.

Mikel Oyarzabal scored the only goal of the game in the 14th minute to give his side the points.

Arguably Spain's best player on the night was their captain, Sergio Ramos.

The Real Madrid defender is now 34 but he showed why he is still considered one of the best defenders in the world.

He was exemplary throughout the 90 minutes as he helped his side to a clean sheet.


And arguably his best moment came late on as he pulled off a quite extraordinary tackle.

With the game reaching its conclusion and Spain leading by a goal, Switzerland's Ruben Vargas found himself in the box and in a dangerous position.

It looked as if he had gone past Ramos, only for the Spaniard to pull off what can only be described as a no-look backheel tackle to dispossess his opponent.

It really was some extraordinary defending and we haven't really seen anything like it. You can view it below:

That is some unbelievable defending. It was extremely risky by Ramos - it could have gone very wrong - but somehow he managed to pull it off.

We wouldn't advise anyone trying to replicate Ramos' effort, though...

It was the highlight of what was a brilliant performance by Ramos and you can view a compilation of his best bits from the game below.

Spain are now well placed to win the second Nations League.

They are currently unbeaten through their first three Group 4 games, having accumulated two wins and a draw.

Luis Enrique's side will play Ukraine on Tuesday as they look to extend their lead over Germany at the top of their group.
