Sergio Ramos Misses Two Penalties In Spain Game Vs Switzerland

Sergio Ramos hadn't missed a penalty in over two years, scoring 26 in-a-row, but the Spain captain missed twice on Saturday night.


It was a landmark night for Ramos as he became Europe's most capped international men's player of all time, his 177th appearance for Spain overtaking Gianluigi Buffon's 176 for Italy.

However it wasn't a night of celebration for the World Cup winner as he twice failed to convert from 12 yards out, as Spain drew with Switzerland in the Nations League.

Remo Freuler put the home side ahead in the 26th minute and Ramos could equalised just before the hour mark. He had a second chance to level the game in the 80th minute, after Nico Elvedi was sent off for a second yellow card.

His second attempt from the spot was a failed 'Panenka' that will leave Fulham's Ademola Lookman feeling slightly less stupid.

Ramos was partially let off for his misses by by substitute Gerard Moreno. The Villarreal striker came off the bench to equalise in the 89th minute against the 10 men.

The draw leaves Luis Enrique's side one point behind group leaders Germany with just one game left, with the top two meeting on Tuesday night.

Jose Gaya's 95th minute equaliser secured a point for Spain the last time the two sides met, so the 2012 European champions will need to improve on that result to make the final four.

Ramos is a legend for Real Madrid but there is some big offers around for him, with both PSG andDavid Beckham's Inter Miami reportedly interested in signing the 34-year-old.

The former Sevilla centre back was voted as the greatest ever centre back by a huge margin last week, although the vote was by Madrid based newspaper Marca.
