Patrik Schick led the Czechs to win over Scotland two goals without in the first matchday of Group D Euro 2020, Tuesday (13/6/2021).
The Bayer Leverkusen striker scored a brace or two goals against Scotland in the 42nd and 52nd minutes. Patrik Schick scored the opener after using Vladimir Coufal’s pass on the right side of the penalty box.
Patrik flanked by two Scottish defenders, Grant Hanley and Liam Cooper, won the duel over the ball and immediately headed the round skin into the right corner of the Scottish goal. Meanwhile, Patrik Schick’s second goal was born from a long-range shot in half the field.
The goal came from the Scottish attack which was blocked by Tomas Soucek. The ball was vomited and then successfully controlled by Patrik Schick in midfield. At the same time, the Scottish goalkeeper, David Marshall, was standing far in front of his goal. Patrik who was observant saw it immediately kick-off and the ball passed over Marshall’s head before nesting in the Scottish goal.
Launching the BBC page, Patrik Schick’s goal was created from a distance of 49.7 yards or about 45.45 meters. It was the furthest distance from a goal a player has scored in Euro history since 1980.
Meanwhile, Patrik Schick ended Euro 2020 with a record five goals, level with Portugal national team bomber Cristiano Ronaldo. However, he failed to bring home the Euro 2020 Golden Boot due to zero assists, while Ronaldo scored five goals and one assist.
Failed to be the 2020 top scorer, Patrik Schick sends a funny message to CR7. The Czech national team striker, Patrik Schick, sent a funny message to Cristiano Ronaldo who beat him in the hunt for the top scorer of Euro 2020.
Cristiano Ronaldo has officially been named the top scorer of Euro 2020 by scoring five goals. The number of five goals was enough to ensure Ronaldo was the sharpest at Euro 2020 because Harry Kane (England) failed to add goals in the final.
Harry Kane finished second in the top scorer with four goals. The Tottenham Hotspur striker is in the runner-up top score for Euro 2020 along with Romelu Lukaku (Belgium), Emil Forsberg (Sweden), and Karim Benzema (France).
The player in question is Patrik Schick, who both scored five goals. However, the title of top scorer of Euro 2020 was still given to Ronaldo because he excelled in the assist record. Cristiano Ronaldo in this case has an assist, while Patrik Schick has none. As with tournament regulations, the assist record will determine the top scorer if there are players who have the same number of goals.
Regarding this, Patrik Schick also gave a funny message to Ronaldo after he failed to become the top scorer. Schick jokingly said that CR7 was lucky to be the top scorer himself because of the assist record.
Despite his failure to become the top scorer of Euro 2020, it is undeniable that Patrik Schick is one of the players who shined during the tournament. The name of the Bayern Leverkusen player will certainly always be remembered because he also scored a magical goal at Euro 2020. Meanwhile, Patrik Schick scored a magical goal from the middle of the field when bringing the Czechs to a 2-0 win over Scotland in the inaugural Group D match.
