Portugal have not been having the best time of it at Euro 2016, with just two points from two games belying their status as group favourites.

They went into their final group game against Hungary needing a win to progress to the last 16, but fell behind behind to a Zoltán Gera strike just before the 20 minute mark.

However, in a move that could have a massive bearing on their qualification hopes, former Manchester United teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani combined to level proceedings on the stroke of half time.


The former’s defence-splitting pass was ably finished off by the latter, and Portgual now have the entire second half to push on for the winner. The second half has just got underway.

With Iceland leading Austria 1-0 in the other match in Group E this afternoon, as things stand Hungary will still finish top of the group on five  points, with Iceland level on points with them but with a slightly better goal difference.

Portugal, meanwhile, as it stands will finish on three points. That will be enough for them to qualify as one of the best-placed teams in third place, and in doing so have their Ireland/Italia 90 moment by qualifying for the next round by drawing all three group games.
