Sergio Ramos explains reason behind goal celebration that got him booked

Following his gesturing glasses celebration, after he converted a penalty in the 2-1 win over Romania, Sergio Ramos has revealed the reason for his celebration that earned him a yellow card. 

The Spain captain held his nerve to score from the spot during the first half of the Euro 2020 qualifier after Arsenal's Dani Ceballos had been fouled. After scoring, Ramos turned to one of the TV cameras behind the goal and made a gesture in which he mimicked wearing glasses - which infuriated the home crowd and earned him a yellow card.

Speaking after the game, Ramos revealed the reason behind his goal celebration, "The yellow card came from some confusion. It was for my nephew. We both wear glasses and it was for him. I did it to cheer him up, to dedicate the goal to him. The referee thought I was gesturing to the stands."

 Since the end of the World Cup, no Spain player has scored more goals than Ramos.
