Spain coach Luis Enrique, meanwhile, said he believes Alvaro Morata looks like a different player since leaving Chelsea on loan in January.
Morata won the Spain penalty that Ramos converted with that ‘Panenka’ style spot-kick in a 2-1 win over Norway.
Asked if he had noticed a difference in the player since he moved on loan to Atletico Madrid he said: ‘Yes I have. He was spectacular for us because of the work he put in.
‘I think he looks much better in terms of confidence. He always has a good attitude but he looks more confident now.’
