Ramos trolls Sterling on social media after the loss against England in the Nations League fixture.
England registered a solid 3-2 victory over Spain in the Nations League game earlier this week. 3 quick-fire goals in the first half, which included a brace for Raheem Sterling, ensured three points for the Three Lions.
Gareth Southgate’s side is now second in the table, two points behind Spain and three ahead of Croatia. The players will now return to club football in their respective leagues this weekend.
Sergio Ramos grabbed headlines after the game against England, as he was criticised on social media for an apparent stamp on Raheem Sterling. The England fans attacked Ramos on Twitter, with some saying that the Spanish did it on purpose.
Ramos has been an infamous figure among the English football fans, and more so after his shoulder-pull on Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final, which forced him to leave the pitch in tears.
However, the Spain and Real Madrid’s captain came with a brutal reply to all his critics on Twitter.
Ramos trolls Sterling:
Sergio Ramos posted a video footage of the ‘stamp,’ for which many English fans accused and criticised him on the social media.

“Nothing. He just congratulated me. I think the ball was there to be won and I think I won it. I do not think it was a foul or a yellow card, really.” pic.twitter.com/vvsQh6EgE6

In the video, it could be seen that Ramos only brushed past Sterling, with no intention to stamp. The English winger, on the other hand, went down too quickly. Ramos has indirectly implied that Sterling dived to get a penalty, as the incident took place inside the box.
Along with the footage, Ramos wrote, “Nada más que decir. Nothing else to say.”

Sergio Ramos also scored the second goal for Spain with the last kick of the game. This was Spain’s first loss at home in over 15 years.
“For a young team, they put in an incredibly mature performance, withstood pressure reasonably well and should all be really proud,” said England’s manager Gareth Southgate after the match.

Luis Enrique, the Spain’s manager, admitted that they were poor in the first half. “We have to admit we played very badly in the first half, we made a lot of individual mistakes,” said Enrique.
