The madridista defender holds the appearances record at 168 games.
Sergio Ramos made his 168th appearance for the Spanish national side in the clash with Norway, setting a new record for his country. The captain has eclipsed the previous record held by Iker Casillas, his 167 games between 2000 and 2016.

Ramos' debut for Spain came on the 26th of March 2005 against China (3-0) and it was the first of 125 wins, another national record. Over the course of more than 14 years, he's also scored 21 goals, a figure which puts him among the top ten all-time scorers for Spain, not to mention his impressive trophy haul of one World Cup and two European Championships.

This legendary number of games has come spread across six official competitions: World Cup (17), Euros (15), Confederations Cup (8), Nations League (4), World Cup Qualification (29) and Euro Qualification (32). Added to these are 63 friendly encounters. His most prolific year in this regard was 2013, when he picked up 17 caps.
