Sergio Ramos breaks international win record

Spain captain Sergio Ramos has broken the record for international victories following La Roja's 4-1 win over the Faroe Islands. 

Ramos continued his fine goal scoring run for the national side, as he netted the opening goal against the European minnows, and he has now won 122 games as Spanish international. 

The victory in the North Sea means that Ramos edges ahead of previous record holder, and former club and country team mate Iker Casillas, whose record of 121 had stood for over eight years.

Their is a Spanish dominance of the other names on in the top five, with Xavi and Andres Iniesta coming in third and fourth place respectively

The veteran defender looks set to build on his record in the coming weeks, with half of Spain UEFA European Championships qualification campaign still to go.

Ramos is also expected to play in the Euro 2020 competition, provided Spain qualify, with a decision on his international future not expected until after that tournament.
