Spain Wants to win gold in Tokyo
He has already won so much, but one medal missing from Sergio Ramos‘ collection is an Olympic medal and he is said to be considering going to the 2020 Olympics Games in Tokyo.
Even though the Euro 2020 final is on July 12, with Ramos obviously hopeful of being involved in that game at Wembley, he believes he could also represent La Roja in Japan at the football tournament that begins on July 22 and that runs to August 8.
This is according to El Mundo, who report that this would be a dream for the centre-back.
“If the chance to go to Tokyo comes up, it would be tremendously exciting for him,” is the view of those close to the player.
Spain have never usually opted for such veteran players to make up their Olympic squads, but this seems to be something Ramos is really keen on.
Spain have already qualified thanks to the Under-21s’ performances at this summer’s UEFA European Under-21 Championship and each competing nation is permitted to include three over-23s in their Olympic squad.
Spain have won Olympic gold once before, doing so when hosting the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona.
