Sergio Ramos was on the receiving end against Switzerland after the Spanish captain missed two shots from the spot in a 1-1 draw against Rossocrociati on Saturday night at the UEFA Nations League Stadium Jakob.
Ramos, 34, marked his 177th appearance for Spain to break Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon’s record for European appearances, but the historic milestone was somewhat clouded by his missed penalties.
Despite the Real Madrid defender making a clearance bound for the line when Spanish goalkeeper Simon Unai was caught off guard, the error from the spot ended a remarkable streak of scoring 25 penalties in a row.
Ramos could have also scored in open play late in the game only to miss the goal, but Gerard Moreno found a draw to avoid what would have been a second straight Nations League loss for Spain after the 1-0 loss. last month against Ukraine.
