Watch: Patrik Schick Scores Against the Scots With a Remarkable Chip From Halfway Line
The Euros are on the move right now.Although there were several high-quality moments over the first few of days of the tournament, altogether, the first few days of the competition were a little lacklustre.
Last night’s Netherlands vs Ukraine game was a complete turnaround, with five second-half goals transforming it into an instant classic. That light fixture was equipped with everything.

We were all looking forward to seeing how the Scots would perform on their return to tournament football this afternoon, but after a promising start against the Czech Republic, things became a little dicey.
Patrik Schick scored the first goal of the game in Glasgow right before the half-time break with this stunning header.
Just after the halftime, the 25-year-old was on the scoresheet again, this time netting the first goal of the competition.
Despite the fact that he scored a fantastic chip from just within the Scottish half, substantial questions have been raised about why goalkeeper David Marshall was standing 10 metres away from the half-way line.
Nonetheless, there is nothing you can take away from the conclusion.
After joining Bayer Leverkusen from Roma for a cost of approximately €25 million last summer, Schick established himself as one of the most promising young forwards in European football.
With this brace, he has now scored 13 goals in 27 appearances for the Czech Republic at the international level.
