However, Ramos has moved to say that he never meant to injure Salah and therefore he harbours no regrets for making the challenge.

Ramos, 32, who will wear the armband for Spain against England at Wembley on Saturday night, said that he had never meant to hurt Salah who dislocated a shoulder in the incident after 25 minutes and later left the pitch in Kiev in tears. In the end you feel it, but I stay out of everything.

"They remember one action in the final, but nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received".

"It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke - and (that's why they) whistle in a great stadium like Wembley".

Early in that game, which Real Madrid won 3-1, he clashed with Mohammed Salah in an incident that saw the Egypt global sustain a shoulder injury that forced him off prematurely and saw his participation in the World Cup limited.

Ramos has shown little contrition over the situation, saying his conscience was clear in the lead up to the global contest. I have never meant to harm a fellow player out on the field of play. "I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious in the slightest". There are people who may have misunderstood it, but these are football things.

David De Gea, who has come under criticism in Spain after making multiple mistakes during the World Cup, made some crucial saves from Manchester United team-mate Marcus Rashford to maintain his side's lead at Wembley.

"He is a great goalkeeper". After a World Cup with many doubts, he deserved (a performance such as this).

"The big games are those that mark the great players". We played against him previous year against Madrid.
