Ramos Not Concerned By Salah Backlash

Ramos said that it was the job of the current squad to restore Spain to the heights that saw them triumph in three consecutive worldwide tournaments - the European championships of 2008 and 2012 and the World Cup of 2010.

Ramos was also involved in a collision with Loris Karius before the goalkeeper made two crucial mistakes for Madrid's first and third goals, with some fans accusing the Spain worldwide of deliberately injuring both players.

Real went on to win 3-1, and despite Ramos' repeated insistence that his 'conscience is clear', some fans have not let the incident go.

Another aspect of Ramos' Madrid baggage in the spotlight this week is his relationship with new Spain head coach Luis Enrique, given their previous positions on either side of El Clasico's bitter divide.

"I'm not going to be affected by that at all".

The 32-year-old played a full 90 minutes against the three-lions in their 2-1 win at Wembley but found himself regularly booed by England supporters throughout the match. "I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious in the slightest".

Ramos' tussle with Salah had resulted in an injury to the Egyptian.

The game on Saturday was England's first since their incredible campaign at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

A former Barcelona boss, there was plenty of speculation that Enrique's appointment would spell the end of Ramos' global involvement.

"We have to look to the future now though and there are other teammates who are very strong".

Enrique, too, gave a glowing report on the man he has decided will continue with the captain's armband under his tenure. He is a great leader on and off the pitch.

"I'm thrilled about him and hope that he is with us for a long time".

However, the Wales star missed out on making the candidates list alongside Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who captained France to World Cup glory.
