Sergio Ramos is a unique player. Yesterday, although he canceled the press conference that in theory he was going to give with Luis Enrique prior to today’s decisive match against Germany (8:45 p.m.), he answered the questions asked by fans and journalists on his social networks.
Of course, one of the most important questions was whether he would shoot more penalties again.
The Real Madrid player has it very clear: “I will throw it away, of course. If I did not approach it that way, it would stop being me,” he said.
“If the moment comes I don’t feel confident I would leave it to a teammate. It’s a unique match and what better way than to depend on us to be in the Final Four “
On Saturday against Switzerland, Ramos missed two penalties in just 20 minutes in the second half.
He is the first player in the history of the national team to do so in a match. Of course, it is also true that he had scored 25 in a row, a bestiality, and went more than two years without failing any.
In the end, a goal from Gerard Moreno saved the tie for the national team (1-1)
In fact, Luis Enrique was asked at a post-match press conference if Sergio Ramos would continue to be in charge of taking penalties.
“If there were another penalty, he would’ve taken it…if he misses two, to take him off penalty duties would be a joke. There’s a list of penalty takers and Sergio Ramos is at the top.”
Sergio Ramos is an absolute indisputable for the Spanish team and for Luis Enrique. Today he will play in La Cartuja, in his native Seville, his 178th international match and will equal the Mexican Claudio Sánchez as the second most played in history.
A story that Ramos does not stop living almost every day.
