The 34-year-old made his 177th look for his nation as he confronted Switzerland within the Nations League and surpassed Gianluigi Buffon to interrupt the file.
However the Actual Madrid star missed two penalties to interrupt a two-year streak of 25 consecutive spot kicks scored.
Ramos had two alternatives from the spot however Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer was greater than equal to the duty.
His second effort was a Panenka try, much like Ademola Lookman’s in opposition to West Ham final weekend, and was simply saved.
Ramos’ blushes have been spared, although, as Gerard Moreno scored a late equaliser to make it 1-1 of their Nations League group match.
“Sergio’s numbers for penalties are out of this world,” mentioned Spain boss Luis Enrique.
“If there had been a 3rd penalty, he would have taken that one as nicely.”
Borussia Monchengladbach keeper Sommer advised Swiss broadcaster SRF: “I’ve come up in opposition to Ramos within the Champions League not too long ago, so meaning I’ve been beforehand engaged in making ready for his penalties.
“I believe he wished to chip the second, but it surely labored out nicely for me.”
