​Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos has managed to surpass Telmo Zarra by scoring his 21st goal for the Spanish national team ​against Romania.


The centre-back is already into the top 10, level with Michel and just two goals away from Alfredo Di Stefano's national team goalscoring haul of 23.


​Marca report that since the conclusion of the FIFA World Cup in Russia last year, there hasn't been a single player who has scored more goals than Ramos on the international stage.


With this game, Ramos has now completed 166 games for his country, just one behind all-time highest Spanish appearance-maker Iker Casillas' 167.




With this win, Spain made it five wins out of five in their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign by earning a scrappy 2-1 victory in Romania on Thursday despite playing the final stages with 10 men after defender Diego Llorente was sent off. Spain had to battle hard for their three points in the end, with Florin Andone closing the gap after Paco Alcacer had doubled the advantaged.


Additionally, Ramos got himself booked for “excessive celebration” which was actually a reaction to the Romanian supporters after certain sections of the crowd had been showing him lewd gestures throughout the game. Never change, Sergio!
