Sergio Ramos is aiming even higher after equalling Iker Casillas’ 167-cap record with Spain on Sunday.
The Real Madrid captain played against the Faroe Islands to draw level with his former teammate.
“Records are there to be broken,” he said afterwards.
“I hope that this momentum, enthusiasm and ambition always accompanies me and that I reach 200 games, which is the objective.
“You have to make it difficult.”
Casillas himself tweeted his compliments to Ramos on Sunday evening, which was moving for the defender.
“I had the opportunity to debut young and I’ve had the confidence of the Spain coaches over the years,” he explained.
“I’m flattered by Iker’s praise.
“I still have to overcome [his number] and I hope I can play for this country for many more years.”
Speaking about the coach, Ramos is happy to be working under Robert Moreno.
“I think he is comfortable and we’re delighted with him,” he said.
“He knows the dressing room and our way of playing well.
“He can help us.”
