Watch Patrik Schick score Euro 2020 ‘goal of tournament’ with insane 50-yard strike against Scotland for Czech Republic

CZECH REPUBLIC striker Patrik Schick has scored an ASTONISHING goal from the halfway line against Scotland at Euro 2020.

The 25-year-old Bayern Leverkusen netted his second of the match from just inside the Scotland half with a remarkable lob.

As Czech Republic broke Schick saw Scotland keeper David Marshall off his line and went for the audacious effort.

And he produced one of the greatest finishes you are ever likely to see as he perfectly whipped the ball up and over Marshall from 50 yards out.

The goal was the furthest out anyone has scored from at the European Championships since 1980.

Social media exploded immediately after the goal hit the back of the net, with football fans stunned by the strike from Schick.

One said: "Got to be a contender for best goal so far of the #Euros2021!"

And another added: "It is the best. Don’t let that commentary subdue you. One of the greatest goals ever scored in international tournament football."

While a third said: "That should carry an x rating. Absolutely obscene goal."

The Czech forward added to his first half header which gave his team the lead at the break.

Scotland's struggle against Czech Republic comes just four days before they travel to Wembley Stadium to take on England.

If they are beaten by England and pointless after two games, the Scots will be hoping a win in their final match against Croatia is enough to see them advance through to the last 16.

Scotland have never been past the group stage of a major football tournament.
