Czech Republic’s centre forward Patrick Schick scored an unbelievable screamer from the midline in today’s match between Scotland and Czech Republic, which was played at Scotland’s Hampden Park.
Patrick Schick striked twice against Scotland tonight as it was his headed goal that gave Czech Republic the lead as little before half time in the 42nd minute.
Despite the home crowd acting as the twelfth man for Scotland, they failed to muster any fruitful moment in the ninety minutes. Aston Villa’s McGinn came close once in the halftime and Scotland were denied a penalty but unfortunately that was all the positive that the Scots will take away from tonight’s match.

The Czechs were just too good to handle in the match as they dominated Scotland in every aspect of the game. They have an unfair advantage in winning Aerial duels due to their height and they are also great dribblers. These two factors left Scotland no alternative but to play direct football through the wingers.
Playing from the wings was supposed to be Scotland’s plus point as their captain Andrew Robertson is probably the best left back in the world right now. But he had to often drop deep into the midfield to regain possession as his teammates were losing too much of it, and Czech Republic capitalised on it.
Patrick Schick scores from the midline
Just seven minutes into the second half, Czech Republic’s Patrick Schick scored his second goal, and boy what a goal it was. The Scottish defenders, who had started to maintain a high line by now in search of a goal, lost possession cheaply again and the ball pinballed it’s way to Patrick Schick who scored a screamer from the midline. The goal was indeed one of a kind and we do not see goals like this everyday. It will undoubtedly be the top contender to be named the best Goal of Euro 2020, and in all likelihood, can also bring Patrick Schick his first Puskas.
