Sergio Ramos Miss Two Penalties As Spain Gets 1-1 Draw Over Switzerland

Sergio Ramos missed two second-half penalties on his record-breaking appearance for Spain but Gerard Moreno rescued the visitors a late 1-1 draw against 10-man Switzerland in Saturday's dramatic Nations League clash.

 

The captain, who earlier blocked a shot on the line, was twice foiled from the spot by Yann Sommer on his 177t international appearance, which saw him become the most-capped European male player.

 

Ramos' misses on his big night appeared as though it would cost Spain dear as Remo Freuler's 26th-minute half-volley put Switzerland on course for a first Group A4 victory.

But the hosts, who lost Nico Elvedi to a red card for his part in the second penalty at St. Jakob-Park in Basel, were denied in the last minute as Gerard spared Ramos' blushes and prevented Spain from falling to successive defeats in the competition.
