The national teams of Portugal and Hungary went toe-to-toe in Budapest on Tuesday night.

The incumbent champions of Europe spent the entire match on the opponent's half of the pitch. Diogo Jota and Andre Silva had their moments but failed to score, as Hungarian goalkeeper secured the ball after their shots. 

Hungarians scarcely went for their own attacks, and these never ended in dangerous situations. The fans supported the home team, and Marco Rossi's squad got even more defensive than they were. They managed to somewhat push the Portuguese away from their goals.

The final five minutes proved the most interesting. At first, Szabolcs Schön scored from the offside; soon after that, Raphael Guerreiro landed a shot from the middle of the penalty area. The ball ricocheted from the defender's leg, and the Portuguese celebrated their first goal. Then, Rafa Silva earned a penalty kick. Cristiano Ronaldo made the score 2-0, which made him the top goal scorer in the history of Euro tournaments.

Eventually, Ronaldo scored the double, sealing the win for his team.
