Rio de Janeiro: Spain defender Sergio Ramos asked the Spanish fans for forgiveness following his side’s elimination from the FIFA World Cup after the defending champions lost 0-2 to Chile in a Group B match at the Maracana Stadium here Wednesday.
“We apologise to all the Spaniards who in these times of crisis take refuge in the successes of La Roja and are now sad and disappointed. Football sometimes is a game that doesn’t give you what you want,” said the Real Madrid player, reports EFE.
The 28-year-old said that it is not the end of an era, noting that he trusts every player in the team.
We're building him (RvP) up now because of the World Cup. It’s a pity but we have to or he’ll never be fit.
