EURO 2020 : Le Portugal et la France démarrent fort
Anthony Lopes’s Portugal defeated Hungary 3-0 and Léo Dubois’s France beat Germany 1-0 in their opening Group F matches.

Hungary were holding on against the defending champion five minutes before full time, but a goal from the former Lorient fullback Raphaël Guerreiro in the 84th minute opened the scoring before a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo (87', 90 +2') sealed the result. The Portuguese won 3-0 over the Hungarians ahead of their match against Germany, who would be defeated later in the day by France, to be played June 19 at the Allianz Arena.

For Léo Dubois and Les Bleus, the opponent was no less than the winner of the 2014 World Cup, Germany. An own goal by Mats Hummels, who had helped to beat France in 2014, put the visitors team on the right track in the 20th minute. Didier Deschamps' players then showed themselves to be very solid defensively and even managed to score two goals that were narrowly flagged off. France thus started its European championship in the best possible way and will be back in action against Hungary on Saturday at 3 p.m.
