The Spain international has won the tournament twice already but is hoping to recover from a poor showing at the last World Cup by taking home a third continental title

Vicente del Bosque's side suffered an embarrassing group-stage exit at Brazil 2014, but have found some form again as they look to complete a hat-trick of European victories after glory at Euro 2008 and 2012.

Real Madrid captain Ramos already has two winners' medals to his name, but is hungry for more as part of Spain's new generation.

"But today we've got a good blend of veterans and young players hungry to do big things. We can be confident with the team we've got but we'll let our football do the talking."
