Sergio Ramos, the Man of the Finals

Sergio Ramos, the Man of the Finals


This Tuesday, Real Madrid was about to lose the European Supercup. It was the 90th minute and the team pressured and tried hard but the goal didn’t arrive. After opening the result with Asensio’s great goal, Sevilla took advantage thanks to Vázquez and Konoplyanka’s unfair penalty. Luckily, Real Madrid have Sergio Ramos.

As Zinedine Zidane said in the press conference after the game, he told the defender to go up and try to score the equalizing goal. And it arrived. It was again the 93rd minute, like in Lisbon, when the goal arrived. Real Madrid and Sevilla went to the extra time and Carvajal scored the final goal.

This wasn’t the first goal in a final for Sergio Ramos. Actually, it’s the fourth time that Sergio Ramos scores in a final, a great statistic for a defender.

Everything started in Lisbon, in 2014. Real Madrid was losing the Champions League final against Atlético de Madrid because of the Godín goal after Casillas error. In the minute 93rd, Modric kicked a corner and Sergio Ramos scored with an amazing header. Real Madrid was able to win the Champions League in the extra time.

The very same year, Sergio Ramos was also the hero in the FIFA World Cup final against Independiente. The game was very close, almost without chances but the Andalusian player scored the opener and eased the title for Real Madrid.

In 2016, the same story. Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid repeated final in Milan. In the first half, after a really good start for Los Blancos, Sergio Ramos scored the opener. After, Ferreira Carrasco forced the extra time but Real Madrid won the 11th Champions League in penalties.

The fourth goal arrived this Tuesday in the European Supercup. Sergio Ramos has a gift, he is always in the right place in the right moment, helping Real Madrid to lift trophies.
