Ramos set to become youngest European player to win 100 caps

Sergio Ramos will become the youngest European player to reach 100 caps in international football when he steps out for Spain on Friday in their World Cup 2014 qualifier against Finland in Gijon.

Ramos, who will be 27 next week, will be the first European to reach three figures at the age of 26, beating Germany striker Lukas Podolski, who reached the milestone at Euro 2012, by 21 days.

The Seville-born star made his Spain debut in 2005 and has been a fixture in Spain's defense since the international retirement of former Real Madrid right back Michel Salgado in the lead up to the 2006 World Cup.
