Scotland debuted at a major tournament 23 years ago. KVO player Jack Hendry was given a starting point with the home team, which was received by the Czech Republic at Hampden Park. It wasn’t an attractive poster, and that was also evident in the field. Both teams did not avoid duels that did not benefit from the quality of the game. The fans were able to see one of the lower halves of this European Championship in the first 45 minutes.
Fortunately, they registered. Andy Robertson left 1-0 after just half an hour, and ten minutes later the net was conceded on the other side. Patrick Schick bounced over everyone and headed the ball neatly into the left corner. A beautiful goal from the striker who plays for Bayer Leverkusen.
The discrepancy after the rest was colossal. The Czechs immediately threatened twice, after which Hendry shot the ball across the crossbar. Then Chic surprised everyone. The Czech striker threw the ball into the goal from the halfway line above Marshall. Fabulous. The goal of the tournament so far.
Subsequently, Scotland sought the deserved contact goal, but Vaclic – who also played a strong game – kept a clean sheet. Final score in Glasgow: 0-2. Thanks to two goals from Schick, who shared the top scorer with Romelu Lukaku.
