A fantastic header followed by an incredible left-footed, curling effort from the half-way line.
Luckily, it still fits on the shot map. 😅 pic.twitter.com/DBVqfpOks3
A European goal for the ages! Patrick Schick from just beyond midfield. Hit and bent inch perfect. The bend and curl inside the top corner is a thing of beauty. Just unreal, on this stage!!! #CZE #EURO2020— Gareth Wheeler (@GarethWheeler) June 14, 2021
