Scotland 0-2 Czech Republic Player Ratings: Stunning Schick scores from halfway line

Scotland's first game at a major international tournament in 23 years ended in defeat as they lost 2-0 to a Patrik Schick-inspired Czech Republic.

Scotland's first international tournament game since the 1998 World Cup ended in a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic at Hampden Park.

Patrick Schick was the hero in this exciting Euro 2020 Group D encounter with a brilliant brace, which included a lob from the halfway line.

  • No doubts over who the star of the show was on Monday afternoon as Schick scored a stunning double for the away side.

    The striker's first goal came just a few minutes before half time as he glanced a brilliant header into the bottom corner from Vladimir Coufal's right-hand cross.

    Schick's second strike will in all likelihood go down as the goal of the tournament - and one of the greatest in European Championship history.

    The Leveruksen hitman curled the ball over David Marshall from the halfway line in what was a simply outrageous effort.

    This was the day that Schick finally showed why he was regarded as such a huge talent a few years ago

    While the Czech Republic earned a deserved victory, they still have to thank their goalkeeper for making a number of key stops.

    In total, Vaclik made five saves as Scotland threw the kitchen sink at their opponents in an attempt to rescue the game.

    His most important stops included tipping Andy Robertson's curling effort over the bar at 0-0 and denying Lyndon Dykes later in the match when the goal was at the striker's mercy.

  • Coufal was the best right back in the Premier League this past season and his €5.4 million move from Slavia Prague to West Ham will go down as one of the best bargain acquisitions of recent memory.

    A major contributing factor to West Ham’s return to European football, Coufal took his club form to the national arena on Monday.

    He gave as good as he got against a world-class player in Robertson and delivered a fantastic cross for Schick’s opening goal.

    There are big question marks over whether Lyndon Dykes scores enough goals to be an international starting striker.

    The 25-year-old only scored 12 times in the English Championship this past season and his profligacy in front of goal cost Scotland against the Czech Republic.

    He snatched at the ball inside the area and missed a sitter to get Scotland back in the match midway through the second half. With it seemingly harder to miss than score, Dykes failed to connect well enough with the ball - allowing goalkeeper Vaclik to save with his feet.
