Euro 2020: Daily Results (June 14) – Patrik Schick Stunner Lights up Day Four

  • Euro 2020 daily round-up.
  • Three fixtures across Groups D and E.
  • Czech Republic striker Patrik Schnick scores goal to remember as Scotland lose opener.

Monday’s day four of this summer’s delayed European Championships saw another three key soccer matchups.

British side Scotland kicked proceedings off with a Group D encounter against the Czech Republic.

Elsewhere, Robert Lewandowski’s Poland opened Group E with a tie against Slovakia before three-time tournament winners Spain started their competition with a game against Sweden.

Despite having a clear home advantage after playing at national stadium Hampden Park, Scotland were unable to rival the Czech Republic, who ran out eventual 0-2 winners. The opening game of the day saw striker Patrick Schnick loop home an early contender for ‘Goal of the Tournament’.

Scotland will now need to go Wembley Stadium on Friday and get at least a point from bitter-rivals England if they’re to stand any chance of progressing beyond the group stage.

Arguably the biggest shock of the competition so far came during Monday’s second game of the day when Slovakia downed Poland in an impressive 1-2 win.

Elsewhere, Spain, who are many people’s pick as the tournament’s eventual winners, were left bitterly frustrated by a resilient Sweden after the third game of the day ended in a goalless 0-0 draw.

Czech Republic Off to Winning Start as Schick Stunner Stuns Scots

Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick has written in his name in the soccer history books!

Opening their Euros 2020 campaign with a fierce tie against Scotland, the Czech Republic, led by manager Jaroslav Silhavy, knew that a win on Monday would put them in with a great chance of qualifying from a tough Group D.

Joined in Group D by 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia and the tournament’s second favorites England, the Czech Republic, who were playing at the notoriously hostile Hampden Park, put in an excellent all-round performance.

The moment of the match and perhaps the entire tournament came from striker Schick.

Shortly after half-time, the Bayer Leverkusen forward pounced on a loose ball before unleashing a simply superb long-range chip.

Having executed his strike with pinpoint accuracy, the striker somehow managed to lob Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall from a whopping 49.7 yards out.

Incredible goal.
