Sergio Ramos was part of the Euro 2008-winning squad led by former Real Madrid teammate - Iker Casillas. He was once again involved in another triumphant international tournament outing as he helped Spain lift the FIFA World Cup in 2010. Along with the likes of Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernadez, Fernando Torres and Carles Puyol, Sergio Ramos formed the core of Spain's famed golden era that dominated modern football. The Real Madrid stalwart went on to win the Euro 2012 tournament with Spain. He also captained the national team at the 2014 and 2018 World Cup editions.
Luis Enrique: "I only knew Sergio Ramos from references and from having played against him. When I met him, I was pleasantly surprised; there is a reason why he holds [Spain's] record for international appearances. I was surprised by his leadership skills and personal qualities." pic.twitter.com/RLYl1sZl8A— Infinite Madrid (@InfiniteMadrid) March 28, 2020
