Scotland’s David Marshall becomes an instant meme after attempting to save stunning Czech goal

Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign didn’t get off to the kind of start that their fans would have dreamt of as they lost 2-0 to the Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Monday afternoon.

It was the first time that Scotland’s men’s team had played in a major tournament since 1998 and their hopes and dreams were soon brought back to reality following a brace from the Czech and Bayer Leverkusen striker Patrik Schick.

The 25-year-old scored an impressive header in the first half to give the Czechs the lead but really made headlines for his stunning second goal which was scored from near the halfway line as he saw Scottish goalkeeper David Marshall off his line.

Schick’s incredible strike is officially the longest goal ever scored at a Euros and, unless something equally mind-blowing happens, will surely go down as the goal of the tournament.

While everyone outside of Scotland sang Schick’s praises, another narrative from the goal emerged as people couldn’t help feel sorry and slightly amused at the sight of Marshall haplessly trying to race back and save the shot.
