The astonishing moment occurred in the Czech victory over Scotland 2-0 in Group D, a month ago. Starting from the Scottish attack that was blocked, the wild ball was controlled by Schick.
Bayer Leverkusen striker saw the position of goalkeeper David Marshall who was standing far in front of the goal line. Schick then unleashed a measured effort, then the ball slid over Marshall’s head before nestling in the Scots goal.
Schick’s goal was recorded as 49.7 yards or about 45.45 meters which became the furthest goal in European Cup history.
Schick beat the nine best goal nominees for the Euros selected by a UEFA technical panel, made up of Europe’s top former players and coaches. In addition, at least nearly 800 thousand votes were cast in just 24 hours after the 10 best goal candidates for Euro 2020 were announced.
French midfielder Paul Pogba’s beautiful goal against Switzerland got the second most votes, while Croatia’s Luka Modric’s goal against Scotland took third place.
Schick himself bought up all the Czech goals against Scotland. The former AS Roma and RB Leipzig striker finished the tournament with five goals, only to lose to Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who took home the Golden Boot after scoring 5 goals and an assist.
