Hungary vs Portugal LIVE: Euro 2020 result and reaction tonight



Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Hungary take on Portugal in the opening game of Group F at Euro 2020 today.

Portugal are back to defend their crown having triumphed over France back in 2016. Blessed with some of the most naturally-gifted players in the world they are one of the favourites to win the tournament again this time around.

They boast a host of winning pedigree with Manchester City title-winners Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva, Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes and European football’s all-time leading scorer Cristiano Ronaldo all in their ranks. They won’t have it all their own way, however, with World Cup winners France and three-time champions Germany also involved.

Hungary round out the undoubted group of death and will have their work cut out to get a result or two against some of the tournament big boys. They’ll have the best home advantage of the competition to try and do it, though, with the Puskas Arena set to hold a 61,000-capacity crowd for their games.

Full-time: Hungary 0-3 Portugal

That’s it. It was a late, late showing from Portugal but in the end they got what they deserved. A frustrating 84 minutes and the match looked to be heading towards a draw before a deflected Raphael Guerreiro strike finally broke the deadlock.

A Cristiano Ronaldo penalty then made it two as he broke the all-time European Championship record. And the Juventus man netted another in added time after a lovely passing move.

Portugal were made to work for it, but they got there in the end.

GOAL! Hungary 0-3 Portugal (Ronaldo) ⚽️

Another for Cristiano! Wonderful one-two between Rafa Silva and Ronaldo is finished off in clinical fashion by the Juventus man. He waits for Gulacsi to commit and then simply rounds him before tucking home his second and Portugal’s third.

He has barely been in this game and yet he has scored twice. His 105th and 106th goals for Portugal.

Euro 2020: Hungary 0-2 Portugal

90 mins: A mad few minutes and Portugal have sown up victory here. You can’t say they don’t deserve it because they have been the far superior team. But you have to feel for Hungary. They were five minutes away from taking a point and then all of a sudden the wheels fell off.

Portugal just playing this one out now.

GOAL! Hungary 0-2 Portugal (Ronaldo, pen) ⚽️

87 mins: He’s done it! Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the greatest goalscorer in the history of the European Championships. He dispatches the penalty into the bottom right corner.

Substitute Rafa Silva escaped through the middle just moments after the opener and was brought down by Orban, who has had a torrid couple of minutes.

Orban was booked, Ronaldo stepped up, Gulacsi went the wrong way and it’s 2-0.

Ten goals at the European Championships for Ronaldo. He moves one clear of Michel Platini.
