Ramos snubbed for Spain Olympics squad

World News

Spain have announced their 22-man squad for the Tokyo Olympic Games, but veteran defender Sergio Ramos was snubbed yet again.

After manager Luis Enrique decided to leave Ramos out of his squad for the 2020 UEFA European Championship, the defender has now been excluded from the final team chosen to play at the Olympics.

This is despite him being available for selection as one of the three players over the age of 23 allowed to be selected.
