The defending European champions, Portugal, will begin their title defense against Hungary this evening at Euro 2020.
The Portuguese won the Euro 2016 final in Paris, but they will have to wait five years to defend their title because Euro 2020 was postponed by a year due to the pandemic.
Portugal has been dealt a difficult hand in Group F, with France and Germany also in the mix, but an opening game against Hungary provides Cristiano Ronaldo and his team with a great opportunity to get off to a winning start.
Date, start time, and location
The match between Hungary and Portugal is set to begin at 5 p.m. BST today, Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
The game will take place at Budapest’s Ferenc Puskas Stadium.
