Sergio Ramos Is Getting Stick Online For Celebrating An Own Goal

There are two types of people in this world - people who love Sergio Ramos, and people who are wrong.

The big Spanish defender is the epitome of cool, he's ruggedly handsome, and he is also a world class shithouse on the pitch.

OK, so not everyone is as taken by Sergio's charms - speak to a Liverpool fan, for example - but the guy has won everything there is to win in the game and literally could not care less what you think.

Count the medals, guy. Count the medals.

Well, he's come in for some stick online today during his country's World Cup 2018 last 16 match against the hosts, Russia.

As a ball went into the box, Ramos was being manhandled by the burly Russian defender, Sergei Ignashevich, who inadvertently deflected the ball into his own net.

It looked for a second as if Ramos had got the telling touch, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that as he wheeled away in celebration.

It definitely wasn't his goal. It clearly came off the defender. To be fair, he probably doesn't want the goal, and it would have had to be a penalty if it hadn't gone in. In a way, then, Ramos made the telling contribution to the goal, despite not actually scoring it.

As we all know, that's not exactly how football works.

Well, some big names have been weighing in on Ramos' celebrations, including former England and Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand.

Ferdy tweeted, "Ramos celebrating the OG" alongside several of the crying/laughing emoji. Clearly Rio was tickled by Sergio's attempts to claim a goal that obviously wasn't his.

Another - admittedly less famous - fan said: "Sergio Ramos celebrated that goal like he scored it and it was a scissor kick. Nothing but respect for myyyy shameless captain"

Shameless is right. He really is the king of the shitebags.

To be fair, it was an important goal too - Spain looked somewhat laborious in their game against Russia.

As it stands they've been taken to penalties, so anything goes. By the time you read this they might already be out of the tournament.

Ramos' (let's just give it to him) goal was cancelled out by a penalty from Artem Dzyuba after Gerard Pique bizarrely jumped for the ball with one of his hands in the air.

They got a tough game from the hosts, who have surprised quite a few at this tournament by not being absolute garbage.

Even once Sergio Ramos eventually hangs up his boots, this is how we should remember him, though.


Wheeling away in celebration for a goal he didn't score after bullying a defender like the big, beautiful, world champion shithouse that he is.
