Sergio Ramos, Tokyo Olympics

Sergio Ramos wants to be in the Tokyo Olympics. The Real Madrid footballer and that this year will play his fourth and perhaps his last Eurocup with the national team, he dreams of adding to his medal the only title he needs to place in his wide showcase of awards: Olympic gold. After touching the glory in the World Cup in South Africa (2010) and winning two European Cups (2008 and 2012), Ramos now has between eyebrows and eyebrows to conquer the Asian country.

Everyone knows Ramos' commitment to the national team. The Camero has never renounced any call from the absolute and along with Busquets, he is the only survivor of that generation who conquered nine years ago the first World Cup in the history of our country. However, despite the character and the claw that gives off the "15" of Spain in the grass, its participation in the next Games is a mystery. If Ramos participates, one of the current U21 European champions will have to stay out.

The Olympic regulation leaves only three places for players born before January 1, 1997 (article 13). What causes that of those who were champions in Udine remain outside by age Sivera, Aguirregabiria, Junior Firpo, Fabián Ruiz, Mikel Merino, Dani Ceballos, Pedraza, Marc Roca and Fornals. Of the nine, seven were starters in the final against Germany.

The U21 coach, Luis de la Fuente, will have to decide that three players will be included in his list and it seems that two already have their place secured. The Arsenal footballer, Dani Ceballos and Fabián Ruiz, which was designated as the best player in the tournament, are indispensable pieces in the national coach's schemes and will be yes or yes in Tokyo. A place would be left over, but West Ham footballer Pablo Fornals is among the candidates to occupy it.

Therefore, the presence of Sergio Ramos in the Tokyo Games is not yet assured. The Andalusian wants to follow in the footsteps of Javi Martínez, Jordi Alba and Mata, who were in the last Eurocup conquered by Spain and days later they went to the London Games. Although many already imagine the one of Camas parading with Pau Gasol and Rafa Nadal at the opening ceremony, we still have to wait.
