Oslo : Defender Sergio Ramos became Europe's most capped male outfield player as Spain played out a 1-1 draw in Norway to edge closer to Euro 2020 qualification.

"All that is personal is a little secondary," the BBC quoted Ramos as saying after the match on Saturday.

"I would have happily traded this 168th cap for a victory. It was not the case. But this record is a great reward after so many years and it's a great source of huge pride.

"I am emotional every time I put on this shirt. That will not change and I hope to continue doing so for many years."

Ramos, with his 168th cap, also became Spain's record appearance maker, surpassing goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

In a Group F stalmate, Saul Niguez scored for Spain but his goal was cancelled out by Josh King's injury-time penalty.
