Sergio Ramos was one of the names former Spanish national team manager Luis Enrique didn’t take to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The 36-year-old showed he was healthy after battling injuries; however, it wasn’t enough for Enrique.
Nonetheless, Enrqiue has since departed the managerial position after Spain crashed in the Round of 16 against Morocco. Luis de la Fuente is now in charge and AS (h/t RMC Sport) reported that he could welcome back Ramos for one last dance with La Roja.
The veteran defender is the most capped Spanish player in history (180 caps, 23 goals), and De la Fuente could reconsider the possibility of recalling him to the national team.
Spain will begin its qualification matches for UEFA Euro 2024 starting in March and this could be Ramos’ final dance with the national team. The last time the PSG defender played for Spain was in 2021, so it’s been a two-year absence.
If Ramos maintains a high level by continuing to play in Europe after this 2022-23 season, with his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expiring in June, perhaps Euro 2024 will be the international tournament he says goodbye to the national team.
