The Czech Republic’s forward has scored what has been dubbed by the media and football commentators the early contender for goal of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

Czech Republic beat Scotland 2:0 on Monday, with Patrik Schick scoring both goals. It was his second-half goal that caught everyone’s attention and triggered a flood of comments online.

​The 25-year-old Schick hit the ball when he spotted David Marshall off his line and executed a strike from near the halfway line into the back of the net.

PATRICK SCHICK WITH ONE OF THE BEST GOALS YOU WILL EVER SEE!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME #CZE

Patrick Schick, take a bow.

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
