Sergio Ramos rues missed chances as Spain's Euro 2020 qualification continues

Spain captain Sergio Ramos was left frustrated as La Roja failed to secure early qualification to Euro 2020 away in Norway.

A penalty in added time from Bournemouth striker Josh King sealed a late 1-1 draw for the Scandinavians, with Spain now having to wait until their midweek clash with Sweden to ensure a place in Euro 2020.

The result put a negative slant on a historic night for Ramos, as he became Spain's all time appearance maker, with 168 games - and Ramos was irritated by the late drama in Oslo.

"Personal record always come second to the team.

"I am always excited and proud to wear this shirt, but I would swap the record for victory tonight.

"We all know that we need to be calmer in these situations to secure qualification.

"But hopefully we can complete it against Sweden."

The veteran defender has recently been linked with a spot in Spain's Olympic squad for the 2020 Games, but he declined to comment, with Euro 2020 qualification still to be decided.
