Sergio Ramos out of Spain’s Euro 2020 line-up

Madrid, May 24 (EFE).- Luis Enrique has left defensive stalwart Sergio Ramos out of Spain’s 24-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 championship.

Ramos, who has captained Spain since 2016 and was a integral part of the team that won the tournament in 2008 and the World Cup two years later, has been struggling to recover from a hamstring injury.

To alleviate potential issues due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Uefa is allowing national teams to select up to 26 players, but Enrique said even a full recovery in the coming weeks would probably not be enough to earn Ramos one of the two unused spots in the squad.

“There is a chance he might recover, but I think it’s unlikely to happen,” he said.

In the last five months, Ramos has only played a total of seven games – five with Real Madrid and two with Spain.
