Ramos say you can't reject chance to play in the Olympics

The Spanish captain said he would like to play for Spain in the Olympic Games and admits it's something he could not turn down as he eyes a gold medal.

Sergio Ramos overtook Iker Casillas as the most capped Spanish footballer ever on Saturday night against Norway. He says that's secondary to the result, however, after Spain were pipped to a win by a late spot kick from Joshue King.

"The personal record is secondary," he said. "I'm proud to be the Spanish player with the most appearances in a Spain jersey. But I hope to play in a lot more."

The captain of the side has also been in the headlines because of a report that he would like to play the Euros and the Olympic Games this summer. He didn't reject that idea when interviewed after the game.

"It's a bit soon to talk about the Olympic Games, but if someone was to call me, I wouldn't say no," he said. "It's something you can't reject. There is a lot of time left in the season and it's a really nice idea."

On the game, Ramos says it's "a pity about the draw" as Joshua King slotted home to level matters in injury time. "Norway took advantage in the last few minutes and in one play, they equalised. We're sad because we would have liked to qualify."
