Sergio Ramos' Goalscoring Form Has Fired Him To 11th Place In Spain’s All-Time Top Scorers

Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos has very much upped his goalscoring exploits this season.

The 33-year-old Spanish centre-back has been in scintillating form for his country after scoring in his last eight matches for his country.

And his major improvement in scoring goals has helped him climb to 11th in Spain's all-time top scorers.

Ramos, who broke the record for most wins in international matches, scored in Spain's 3-0 victory against Sweden to bring his tally up to 20.

But it won't be hard for the Madrid superstar to keep on climbing the ladder and leave his mark in Spain's history.

After all, Ramos is only one behind Míchel, two away from catching up to Julio Salinas and three away from Los Blancos legend Alfredo Di Stéfano.

He has a long way to go before he catches up to all-time record scorer David Villa, who sits at the top of the pile with 59.

Ramos' achievement should not be overlooked -- not that it will -- as he has scored more times for his country than the likes of Pedro, Cesc Fàbregas, Andrés Iniesta and Xavi.

The Spain skipper led his side to a convincing win over Sweden as Spain maintained their dominance at the top of Group F in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

He opened the scoring from the spot kick and had the opportunity to score a brace when Luis Enrique's side received another penalty.

However, Ramos selflessly passed up the opportunity to add another to his name when he handed the ball to Álvaro Morata instead.

Is Ramos the best defender in the world?
