Sergio Ramos suffers an injury, ruled out of Spain squad
Spain's captain Sergio Ramos suffered an adductor injury during La Rojas UEFA Nations League match against Croatia. He has been ruled out of the Spanish squad for their friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Spain were not able to repeat their home performance, when they defeated Croatia 6-0, and succumbed to a 2-3 loss against the World Cup finalists. Here are further details.
Croatia staged a dramatic win in the match where all the goals came in the second half. Andrej Kramarić scored the first goal of the match for Croatia, which was equalized by Dani Ceballos, and Croatia again took a lead via Tin Jedvaj's goal only to be equalized by a penalty from Ramos. Jedvaj scored in the stoppage time to snatch the victory.
After Croatia's victory, the League A group four has been blown wide open and any team can qualify for the next round. Spain currently sit on the top of the table with six points and both Croatia and England are with four points each. England and Croatia have their match scheduled on Sunday where they will meet at Wembley.
Real Madrid have a line of injured players and Sergio's addition will be a further blow to the side as Solari aims at winning his fifth consecutive match as Real's new manager. Real's Nacho Fernandez will be out of action for at least two months. Even though Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal, Jesus Vallejo, and Marcelo have returned from injuries, their fitness remains a concern.
