Sergio Ramos wants the world to fall in love with Spain again

Share

Salah injured his shoulder after falling under a heavy challenge from Ramos as Real went on to win 3-1.

The former FC Barcelona mentor will be in charge of his first match with the Spanish national team since the disappointment of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, when La Furia Roja take on England in the UEFA Nations League.

Spain crashed out at the round of 16 during the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Ramos recently caught headlines after a certain interaction during the Champions League draw. Jurgen Klopp later accused Ramos of flooring Salah "like a wrestler". Ramos was however unwilling to add more fuel to the controversy. He said, "I think that is something the press said". "It doesn't matter to me".

"I'm not really concerned about that [reaction]", he told reporters. I never wanted to hurt an opponent on the pitch, of course, so my conscience is really clear about what I did that night. My conscience is very clear. "I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious about that in the slightest". "I am not anxious about that in the slightest". The RFEF replaced him with former FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

Calls for De Gea to lose his place intensified throughout Spain's disappointing World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, most notably after he allowed a tame Cristiano Ronaldo shot to squirm through his hands during a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal in the group stage. "I have been here for many years but still feel very young and eager and want to continue winning with the national team, it is all good for the moment". Previous year I was in the preliminary squad but, in the end, not selected.

Barca's form had dipped but they would still win the domestic double a month later, one year after he had led them to a brilliant treble in his first season, matching the achievement of Pep Guardiola in 2009.

"We have met before as rivals". We have got on well, as we both have strong characters but it's good vibes.

Like a general inspecting his troops, new Spain coach Luis Enrique stood on a makeshift platform and attentively watched as his players practiced below on a recent hot morning in Madrid. We are trying to implement his philosophy.
