Notes

Euro 2020 (in 2021)

Round 1, Group D, venue : Hampden Park

Scotland 0 – 2 Czech Republic

Striker Schick scored both goals.
The 2nd an absolute classic lob from 47 yards (just inside the Scot’s half) over a retreating David Marshall, from a move where Scotland had just had a shot blocked.

I tried using “niblick” but it just didn’t scan well.

The title?
It was in the original last line – and then I changed the last line!
Decided to leave it in as the title….
bit of a play on words, as in “not a proper limerick”
