Scotland’s first match at a men’s major finals in 23 years didn’t pan out well as the Czech Republic inflicted opening Euro 2020 defeat at Hampden, thanks to Patrik Schick’s brace, including a long-range belter.
Patrik Schick opened the scoring with a first-half header, but it was his jaw-dropping halfway-line goal that stole the show. And as far as goals are concerned, the stunner is already up for goal of the tournament contender.
The Scots did put in a good performance but failed to take their chances, and that’s a mistake they’ll be hoping not to repeat when they go to Wembley on Friday to take on a spirited
England side, before trading tackles with Croatia’s experienced legs four days later in Glasgow.
