Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos scored his 100th goal for the club on Tuesday night in a Uefa Champions League encounter against Inter Milan at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Ramos led the Spanish giants to a vital 3-2 Champions League victory, netting a trademark header in the 37th minute from a Toni Kroos corner to put Madrid 2-0 up before Milan levelled matters to force a dramatic finish to the game.
Brazilian star Rodrygo then scored a late winner to give Real their first win in Group B after a surprise 3-2 home defeat by Shakhtar Donetsk and a 2-2 draw at leaders Borussia Moenchengladbach.
“It’s not bad,” said Ramos after hitting the landmark strike at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium, Real’s training ground and temporary home as their Santiago Bernabeu ground is being renovated.
“Individual records are secondary, but you like hitting them and as long as they keep on helping the side win, hopefully, I can get a few more.

“It was a tough game, but we were able to get a good result in the end and secure three very important points,” added the 34-year-old.
“We knew it was a do-or-die game and when you are pegged back to a draw in a match you were winning, you need to push on. We’d let them off the hook a bit and in the Champions League you can’t afford to do that.”
The Spain centre back enters an exclusive club of 19 players for Madrid who have hit triple figures in terms of goals and says he is looking forward to boosting his impressive goal tally.
Ramos has scored in every season of his Madrid career and his tally of 13 goals last campaign was the highest in his career.
