The Euros has been rocked after a wild keeper brain fade led to a moment of brilliance from Czech Republic's Patrik Schick.

Czech Republic were leading 1-0 after 51 minutes when a deflected shot landed at the feet of Schick inside his own half.

Schick then moved the ball just past halfway when he spotted the keeper, David Marshall, bizarrely off his line.

The Czech star then launched an audacious curling strike, which lobbed the keeper and ended up in the back of the net.

UEFA said it was the longest distance for a goal in the tournament at 49.7 meters. 

The previous record of 38.6 meters came from Germany midfielder Torsten Frings at Euro 2004.

Schick and the other Czech players ran toward the corner of Hampden Park where a few dozen Czech fans erupted in celebration.

Schick's remarkable goal and audacious effort rightfully sent the football world into meltdown on social media.

Czech Republic take Group D lead

Schick had earlier given the Czechs the lead in the 42nd minute with a powerful header after muscling himself between two Scotland defenders. 

It was an excellent finish that came from an equally outstanding cross from right back Vladimir Coufal.

The Czech Republic took the lead in Group D with three points and spoiled the party for Scotland, which was returning to a major men's soccer tournament for the first time since the 1998 World Cup.
