Watch: An early contender for Goal of the Tournament at the Euros

The astonishing long-range Patrik Schick effort doubled the Czechs’ lead against Scotland

CZECH REPUBLIC STRIKER Patrik Schick may have tied up the Goal of the Tournament award at Euro 2020 already, with a stunning long-range goal against Scotland at Hampden Park. 

The Bayer Leverkusen striker had already given his side the lead with a header just before half-time, and then doubled that advantage in audacious style on the 52-minute mark. 

Jack Hendry’s long-range shot was blocked and broke into Schick’s path, who allowed the ball run over the halfway line before whipping an outrageous first-time effort over the retreating David Marshall. 

The Czechs ultimately won the match 2-0.
