GLASGOW, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick scored twice to give his side a 2-0 win in their opening Euro 2020 game against Scotland at Hampden Park on Monday.

Schick's finishing was the difference between the two sides, with his first goal in the 42nd minute coming from a smart header following Vladimir Coufal's measured cross after the Scots failed to clear a corner.

Schick's second in the 52nd minute was a work of art as he latched onto a rebound out of the Czech defense before hitting a 50-meter effort which curled and dipped over the stranded David Marshall in the Scottish goal.

Scotland never let their heads drop, but despite Andy Robertson being a constant threat down the left and lofting a hatful of balls into the Czech area, they were unable to find a way past Tomas Vaclik, who produced good saves to twice deny Lyndon Dykes.
