European champions Portugal got their title defence off to a winning start thanks to a flurry of late goals in a 3-0 win over Hungary at a packed Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest this morning (Singapore time).
Cristiano Ronaldo, who made history by becoming the first player to appear in five European Championships, converted an 87th-minute penalty and scored another goal in the second minute of added time.

In the process, he became the all-time top scorer in the tournament’s history with 11 goals.
The Group F game seemed to be heading for a draw before Raphael Guerreiro’s shot took a deflection and trickled past Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi six minutes from time.
