Scotland 0-2 Czech Republic, Euro Cup 2020: Schick double sinks hosts
Patrik Schick scored twice playing against Scotland in the Euro Cup 2020. He scored his first goal before half-time in 42 minutes and after half-time in 52 minutes. The Czech Republic enjoyed a winning start to their EURO campaign with Patrik Schick scoring two wonderful goals to see off Scotland. Scotland had the better of the half-chances in the opening half, with Lyndon Dykes sweeping wide of the near post and Andy Robertson drawing a fine save from Tomáš Vaclík, but it was the visitors who struck the opening blow just before the interval when Schick expertly glanced in Vladimír Coufal’s cross. The second half was much more open. David Marshall quickly had to deny Schick and Vladimír Darida, before Scotland roared back as Jack Hendry rattled the bar and Vaclík clawed away a mis-hit clearance from Tomáš Kalas. Schick would have the decisive say on 52 minutes, though, spotting Marshall off his line and lobbing the Scotland goalkeeper from close to the halfway line to stun Hampden Park.
