In the second half, Schick got the ball at the level of the halfway line, after which he saw Scottish keeper David Marshall standing far in front of his goal and made an effective strike.

The beautiful goal of the 25-year-old Czech, who turned out to have scored from 45.5 meters, was good for a record.

Never before has someone scored from such a great distance at a European Championship.

"I saw him (keeper Marshall, red) standing in front of his goal and I've been watching that since the first half. I knew he was far forward when I got the ball," said Schick.

"When I had the ball, I looked again quickly. I saw that he was again quite far in front of his goal and just tried it. It was a beautiful goal, a wonderful feeling."

'This goal was out of this world'

Schick's goal caused disbelief among the Czechs.

"It is clear that this is the goal of the tournament," said midfielder Tomas Soucek.

National coach Jaroslav Silhavy went even further.

"This goal was out of this world," he said.

Silhavy knows that the next round is already close with the 0-2 victory.

"But I think it will take one more point to be sure."

The Czech Republic will play again in Glasgow on Friday and then face Croatia, which lost their first game in Group D to England 1-0.
