    The Czech Republic’s forward has scored what has been dubbed by the media and football commentators the early contender for goal of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

    Czech Republic beat Scotland 2:0 on Monday, with Patrik Schick scoring both goals. It was his second-half goal that caught everyone’s attention and triggered a flood of comments online.

    ​​The 25-year-old Schick hit the ball when he spotted David Marshall off his line and executed a strike from near the halfway line into the back of the net.

    ​Czech Republic is in Group D of the Euro 2020 tournament and is set to play against Croatia on 18 June and England on 22 June.
