Sergio Ramos entered European football history during Spain’s confrontation with Switzerland in the European Nations League. Still, the meeting itself was a testament to the negative number of the Real Madrid squad leader.
Ramos squandered the opportunity to adjust the score, after the locals first took the goal of Remo Freier, where he missed a penalty in the 57th minute, the first after 25 successful kicks, and for a period of 730 days, before strangely wasting a second kick, 10 minutes before the end.
And Jan Somer, the goalkeeper of the German team Borussia Monchengladbach, who last season was close to moving to Barcelona, managed to stop the series of successful penalties for the captain of the “La Roja” battalion on two occasions so that Spain wasted two penalties in the same match for the first time in its history extending to 100 General, according to the statistics site “Master Chip.”
Sumer became the second goalkeeper to save a penalty kick for Sergio Ramos, as Daniel Subasic was the first at Euro 2016, and since then, the Spanish captain has not put a penalty kick.
The Swiss goalkeeper shined with his team, especially in the Champions League this season, after he contributed to his team’s defeat of Real Madrid in the group stage, at a time when he had won the praise of Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer after his distinguished performance in the Bundesliga competition.
Sergio Ramos missed 2 penalties for Spain today. 😳😳 that second penalty was very poor tbh. Great reading by the Goalkeeper Yan Sommer.
