Patrik Schick was the difference between the two sides as the Czech Republic soaked up early pressure to win 2-0 against Scotland at Hampden Park.

While the Scots would have kicked themselves for conceding a soft goal in the first half. There was absolutely nothing the team could do as Schick screamed the second goal from the halfway line.

Schick's screamer doubled the Czechs' lead in the 52nd minute. Schick took advantage through a counter-attack after the Scottish forward's were dispossessed just outside the opposition penalty area. Schick outsmarted the Scottish keeper David Marshall who was taken by surprise by a sudden attack on goal from the halfway mark with a left-foot by Schick.

Scotland will play England next on June 19 while Czech Republic will face Croatia a day before in their next match of Group D.
