ROSSI READY TO RUMBLE
Hungary may be in the so-called group of death, but coach Marco Rossi is confident his men can pull off a shock.
He said: “We’ll do everything to push ourselves to the limit. We know who we’re up against.
“We’ll keep our feet on the ground, but, of course, we want to achieve our dreams. Dreaming is free, so we dream.
“Our dream remains between us, of course. We talk about it and want to live that dream. Let’s hope it continues during the Euros.”
Hungary play host in the Puskas Arena in front of a rare 61,000 capacity crowd, with life in Budapest back to normal for residents carrying immunity cards.
That’s after Viktor Orban, Hungary’s Prime Minister, defied the European Union to make use of vaccines available from Russia and China and accelerated the release of national lockdown regulations.
Hungary reached the last 16 of Euro 2016. In that tournament they played Portugal in the group phase in a 3-3 draw.
Portugal have never lost against Hungary (won nine, drew four).
