Sad news for Spain, who are hoping to qualify for the Euro 2016. But it seems they’ll have to do that without Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos who is out due to injury.
Ramos suffered a dislocated shoulder in the champions league match against Shakhtar Donestk. An injury expected to sideline him for up to a month.
The Spanish Football Federation has revealed that Nacho Fernandez has been called up to replace the injured Ramos, who reported for duty on Tuesday, but wasn’t cleared by the doctors.
“I am how I am, it’s an injury which needs four weeks and I would be coming back in just over two,” he told reporters as he entered the Las Rozas complex, without any bags.
“Some people value that, others don’t, I am not looking for a medal but obviously injuries need a certain time that you have to respect.
“Sometimes you skip that because there are big games ahead and that is what the doctors and coach will have to decide.”
