Whilst Xavi, Figo and Zidane were different kinds of players most renowned for their excellent ability on the ball and their dribbling and passing abilities, however, they weren’t most well known for their goalscoring abilities.
Nevertheless, Ramos has now eclipsed the trio of legends with his goal tally for Real Madrid which is very impressive considering that he is a defender.
Thanks to Ramos’ penalty, Real Madrid now look on course to win the La Liga title as things stand.
