Fabregas and Costa both played the full 90 minutes in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory at Liverpool on Saturday.
However, Fabregas has pulled out of Spain’s squad for the upcoming games against Belarus and Germany.
Meanwhile, Costa was left out by Vicente del Bosque, with the Spain boss keen to avoid another spat with Blues manager Jose Mourinho over the striker’s apparent injury problems.
Ramos, who has 122 senior international caps to his name, reckons the Chelsea pair are setting a bad example to young players.
The Real Madrid favourite told reporters: “Often with injuries there can be a world of difference between what we have and what is said in public.
“It’s difficult because this is not a club team but the national team where you do not come every day. Laying out rules is difficult.
“But above all I would have liked the players to show the same commitment to the national team as they do to their club.
“You must show this commitment and spirit to all the new players. There are times I have played despite having some niggles. It all depends on the DNA of the player.”
