We are only four days away from the 2021 European Cup, but it is difficult to see anyone surpassing Patrik Schick to become a goal scorer in the tournament.
The Czech Republic striker scored a goal you don’t see every day: a midfield shot. This is the second goal of the Czech Republic and Scotland in the Group D match held in Glasgow Hampton Park.
Sigg made a contact in the Scottish half and shot the ball from 50 yards to the swinging goalkeeper David Marshall, who was blocked from his defense.
The goal is Sigg’s second game. The 2-0 victory is an important group, which also includes European heavyweights England and Croatia. His first strike came from an excellent header that went beyond Marshall’s range.
Sigg, 25, plays for Leverkusen in Germany. Before moving to the Italian Serie A (Sampdoria and Roma), he had a difficult time in Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic. Before Leverkusen locked him on a five-year contract, he was on loan to Leipzig in Germany.
Czech Republic coach Jaroslav Silhave said to Patrick Sigg’s absurd goal:
“We know he is a genius, he knows how to end, that’s why he is there-it’s something unique in the world. It’s really been a long time since we saw such a goal in midfield.”
