Patrik Schick scored an early contender for the best goal of Euro 2020 for the Czech Republic against Scotland on Monday afternoon.
The 25-year-old, who plies his trade with Bayer Leverkusen, spotted Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall off his line and executed a magnificent strike from near the halfway line into the back of the net.
It was a remarkable moment of individual brilliance from the striker, who put the Czech Republic 2-0 up.
Schick had put the Czechs 1-0 up at Hampden Park with a header shortly before half-time.
But it’s his second goal that is likely to be remembered for years to come.
After receiving the ball on the halfway line, Schick brilliantly lofted the ball over Marshall and into the back of the net.

Struck just under 50 yards out, per Opta, Schick's wondergoal is the furthest distance from which a goal has been scored on record at the European Championships.
Take a bow, Patrick!
