Czech Republic earned their first win of the 2020 Euros on Monday and they were able to seal the win on a miraculous goal from the boot of Patrik Schick. The 25-year-old forward already had a goal to his name (42’) before hammering a HOWITZER from midfield ten minutes later. We’re not quite sure what Scottish goaltender David Marshall was doing on this one but it was still a brilliant strike nonetheless.
As it turns out, Schick’s prayer from midfield is now the longest goal at the tournament’s history since it was introduced in 1980. The previous record was held by former German footballer Torsten Frings at 38.6 meters on a goal he scored back in 2004.
It’s going to be tough for any goal at this year’s tournament to beat this one. What a strike.
