Video: Patrik Schick works up ridiculous bend during 50-yard goal against Scotland

Patrik Schick induced an unimaginable degree of curl in his shot as he caught Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall off his lines with a 50-yard strike from the halfway line.

The Bayer Leverkusen forward showed great vision to score his second goal of the match at Hampden Park when he struck it the first time from a long way out to put the Czech Republic 2-0 up in their Group D clash.

On the other hand, as much as we can blame the Derby County goalkeeper, who no doubt got caught with his pants down, a huge part of the blame should also go to Jack Hendry for his helpless kick straight at the Czech player for no apparent reason.

The distance on the hit is incredible, but that curve on it just makes it unbelievable. Check out Schick’s goal below –
