Sergio Ramos retires from international football 

Spain legend Sergio Ramos has announced his retirement from the national team, having made 180 appearances for La Roja.


The new Spain manager Luis De La Fuente informed Ramos about his decision to exclude him from the team which ultimately led to the player’s decision to retire.

The centre-back made his debut for Spain in 2005 and earned 180 caps for La Furia Roja.

Ramos won one World Cup and two European Champions between 2008 and 2012 for La Roja.

Ramos saw his game time diminish significantly under head coach Luis Enrique, having missed out on his Euro 2020 and Qatar 2022 squads.

The defender's last ever Spain appearance came off the bench against Kosovo on March 31, 2021.
