Ramos relishes Real competition

Sergio Ramos believes the freekick he netted in Spain's 5-1 win over Panama proves he should be given a chance to take them occasionally for Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old, who has scored his fair share of goals from headers throughout his career, showed his cultured side on Wednesday by netting a delightful curling effort into the far corner in La Furia Roja's comfortable win.

Given the amount of quality at the Santiago Bernabeu, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil are normally first to the ball whenever Real get a freekick in a dangerous position, but Ramos believes his own set-piece ability is good for the club.

"It is good to have competition," he told COPE. "At Real Madrid we have many good players that the team can learn from.

"Sometimes I have decided matches but of course I am talking about players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil."

The ex-Sevilla man also touched on the significance of the victory over Panama and denied Spain were a two-club team.

"The experience was positive on Wednesday," Ramos added.

"We will all return home fit and healthy, which is important. And no, our national side is not only about players from Barcelona and Real Madrid."

Ramos' next chance to shine will be on Saturday when Real take on struggling Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.
