Ramos admitted he had deliberately got booked when he commented in a post-game interview that "seeing the result, I'd be lying if I said I didn't provoke it, it's something I had in mind". Nonetheless, it's a risky approach as UEFA rules state a player who purposely obtains a booking can be banned for two games.
Speaking to BT Sport after Thursday's game, Cole said: "The response was excellent, I think Sarri's put his marker down, "I'm going this way, we're sticking with my philosophy" and the lads bought into it". And that's what I meant when I said that in football you have to make complicated decisions.
Ramos later insisted via Twitter that he did not "force the card".
"I will support from the stands as a fan more with the hope of playing in quarters". Probably not. Many were quick to observe that Ramos, who had been on two bookings heading into the match, knew what he was doing given a suspension now will reduce the risk of missing a match later in the competition - with all bookings wiped following the quarter-final stage.
