Watch: Schick scores from halfway line vs Scotland

Watch: Patrik Schick scores from halfway line to make history in Scotland 2-0 Czech Republic

June 14, 2021 By Ali M.
The Czech Republic forward grabbed a brace, with his second goal coming from a whopping 49.7 yards out!

Scotland and Czech Republic kicked off Monday's Euro 2020 action, with both sides locking horns in the early kick-off with the sole aim of keeping pace with England. Naši ended up coming away with all three points, beating the Tartan Army 2-0 to move level on points – but ahead on goal difference – with the Three Lions.

This fixture, however, will be remember for one goal, not the performance or the score line. Patrik Schick netted both strikes for his national team, with the latter effort already emerging as the favorite contender for the Goal of the Tournament. 

The 25-year-old's brace came on opposite ends of the half-time break, breaking the deadlock in the first half before doubling his side's lead early on in the second half. His first goal was nothing special: a well-worked header but nothing more than that. However, his second goal was nothing short of jaw-dropping. 

Czech Republic were defending their goal against the Scottish when a quick turnover in possession saw Patrik Schick get the ball on the halfway line with the opposition goalkeeper way off his line. The Bayer Leverkusen ace quickly noticed that David Marshall was out of position and thus decided to test his luck with an audacious long-range effort.

And it went in! To give you perspective, Schick took his shot just after crossing the halfway line, scoring from a whopping 49.7 yards out, to be precise. This saw him enter the history books, netting a goal from the furthest distance in the competition's history. Check it out in the videos below (some are geo-restricted).

A brace, a Goal of the Tournament contender – there was nothing more the Czech Republic could have asked from their in-form attacker. As a result, no one can argue with UEFA's decision to name him the Star of the Match.
