Captain Sergio Ramos scored his 16th goal of the season – and his fifth chipped penalty – as Spain edged past Norway 2-1 in their opening Euro 2020 qualifying game.

Defender Ramos converted a ‘Panenka’ style spot-kick for the winning goal.

Former Bolton loanee Rodrigo scored the opener on his home ground in Valencia before Bournemouth’s Joshua King equalised with a penalty for Norway.

Spain won the European Championship in 1964, 2008 and 2012.

They dominated the contest with 75% possession and 26 shots, with Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who is on loan from Chelsea, missing a number of chances for the hosts.

But he did earn Spain’s penalty when tripped in the box by Norway goalkeeper Rune Jarstein, allowing Real Madrid centre-back Ramos to step up and dink in his 10th penalty of the season to take his tally to 90 career goals.
