Ramos and Morata bag penalties before superb Oyarzabal strike as Enrique’s men make it four wins from four Euro 2020 qualifiers

RAMPANT Spain hit the Swede spot with two penalties to made it four wins from four Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Luis Enrique’s dominant hosts had Rodrigo’s goal wrongly ruled out for offside before Sergio Ramos‘s 64th minute penalty opener, Alvaro Morata‘s late spot-kick and debutant Mikel Oyarzabal’s superb curler.

Real Madrid skipper Ramos bagged the belated breakthrough after Chelsea striker Morata was tripped following a sharp turn.

Ramos then handed the ball for the second spot-kick to Chelsea striker Morata, giving the Atletico loanee a kiss on the cheek as he did so.

Morata’s successful kick on 84 minutes gave the scoreline a more realistic look.

And 60 seconds later came the last and best as Real Sociedad winger Oyarzabal struck in style.

For Ramos, in particular, it was a joyous night – a week after he called a press conference to say he is rejecting a lucrative offer from China to stay at the Bernabeu.

The 33-year-old said then: “The wage does not matter to me. I would play for Real Madrid for free.


“I am Madridista. I want to retire here. If I ever leave here, it will be when I’m winning.

“The best decision has always been to talk face to face and resolve any issues.

“I have never had an issue with the president (Florentino Perez). Our relationship is like a father and son.”
