Real Madrid Captain and Spain international, Sergio Ramos, has been ruled out of Spain’s international friendly match against England due to a shoulder injury.
Ramos sustained the injury after scoring a spectacular acrobatic goal against Sevilla in their La Liga 3-2 defeat over the weekend and he was substituted in the 22nd minute of the game.
The 29-year-old centre back had dislocated his left shoulder during their champions league match against Shakhtar Donetsk in September, and was ruled out in several games for real Madrid before his return to action last week in their Champions league 1-0 defeat to Paris St Germain.
“My shoulder is so-so,” Ramos told Madrid’s official website. “I fell and tweaked it (shoulder) again.
“The important thing now is recovering and waiting until Tuesday, when I’ll have a scan.
“It looks unlikely that I’ll be available for the national team now because if I wasn’t able to play on in this match…,” he said.
Injured Ramos is in Coach Vincente del Bosque’s 23man squad list against England in Alicante and Belgium in Brussels next week.
“Now I’ll have to try and recover as quickly as possible because it’s an injury that can cause you problems if it doesn’t heal well,” Ramos said.
