Spain captain Sergio Ramos was pleased with his record of 168 games for his country, beating former Real Madrid team-mate Iker Casillas by one, but was sad about drawing 1-1 in Norway after a late penalty.

The 33-year-old was part of the Spain sides which lifted the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2008 and Euro 2012 titles.

"Ramos' record is incredible", Moreno told a news conference.

That would leave Romania as the only team mathematically able to catch Spain, if they beat Norway, but the top two go through.

Spain gave Norway plenty of chances throughout the second half and it came back to bite them in stoppage time when keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga clattered into Omar Elabdellaoui and referee Michael Oliver pointed directly to the spot. I think we have a great team. "In the second half we have tightened up more, we generated opportunities to score the second goal. but in the end the control has been lost".

According to reports in Spain, the team that travels to Japan was expected to be based around the players who won the European Under-21 Championship in June.

"They go insane when there is a team that has nothing to lose, and that's what happened to Norway".

Spain coach Roberto Moreno insists Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Odegaard wouldn't be good enough for his squad. "I would love to have seven players from the same team, who will play together every week. but that is not the case".
