For entry into the competition at Euro 2020, Scotland were beaten by the Czech Republic (0–2) on a double from Patrick Schick in Glasgow.
Supporters of the “Tartan Army” have waited for it for more than 20 years… for their first match in a major international competition since the 2018 World Cup, Scotland missed a bow against the Czech Republic in Glasgow on Monday (0 – 2)).
Andrew Robertson’s teammates had a lot to believe in in recent months with encouraging results, and among them were two home matches, one against the Czech Republic, which saw the Scots twice in the League of Nations last year. There was dominance. But nothing went according to plan, so Steve Clark’s men took a shower as they entered the race.
Schick’s brilliant goal
Inspired by Hampden Park and its 10,000 spectators, the Scots had a good start to the match. But they were surprised by a header from Patrick Schick at the end of the first period (0-1, 42nd). And while Jack Hendry found the bar after the locker room (47th), Schick doubled the stakes with an absolutely sensational lob (0-2, 52nd).
The Scots continued to push, but Tomas Vklik released the necessary save (49th, 66th…) to extinguish all hope. For the British, it would be necessary to bounce back on the second day in a duel against the English neighbor, which already promises to be heated. The Czech Republic will make a follow-up effort against Croatia.
