Euro 2020: Schick and Piatek on target

Patrik Schick bagged a brace for the Czech Republic, Krzysztof Piatek was decisive for Poland and Fabian Ruiz made his Spain debut in today’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Roma striker Schick struggles to find the back of the net at club level, but shows no such difficulties representing his country.

He scored both the Czech Republic goals to beat Bulgaria 2-1, although his Roma teammate Aleksandar Kolarov had a nightmare as Serbia lost 5-0 away to Andriy Shevchenko’s Ukraine.

Milan forward Piatek came off the bench in North Macedonia and broke the deadlock within a couple of minutes to give Poland the victory.

Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz made his senior Spain debut, coming on as a substitute during the 4-1 win away to the Faroe Islands.
