Portugal vs Germany build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Just when it seemed the defending champions were heading towards a goalless draw, up stepped left-back Raphaël Guerreiro in the 84th minute to break Hungarian hearts. Fernando Santos saw his side double their lead from the spot moments later when Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 10th goal at the European Championship, subsequently making him the competition’s all-time leading scorer, but he wasn’t done yet. Portugal’s No.7 would double his tally following a neat team build-up in stoppage time.
It was a frustrating evening in Munich for three-time European champions Germany, who suffered an opening gameweek loss against France. An unfortunate Mats Hummels own goal ultimately decided the contest, though Löw’s men never put Les Bleus under any real sustained periods of pressure. Across 90 minutes of play, the hosts attempted no fewer than 10 shots on goal, but just one of those efforts were on target. This setback was historical as Germany had never before lost their first game at a European Championship.
- Portugal (vs Hungary): Patrício; Semedo, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro; Carvalho, Pereira; Silva, Fernandes, Jota; Ronaldo.
- Germany (vs France): Neuer; Ginter, Rüdiger, Hummels; Kimmich, Kroos, Gündogan, Gosens; Havertz, Müller; Gnabry.
Leon Goretzka and Jamal Musiala are both available for selection after regaining fitness. However there’s no room for Lukas Klostermann, who misses the rest of Euro 2020 due to a minor thigh injury. The day after it was announced Nuno Mendes sits out the Germany match after sustaining a thigh injury, João Félix has been withdrawn from contention. The Atlético Madrid forward missed their opening game against Hungary and is still not 100%.

Players to watch:
- Portugal: There’s no shortage of Portuguese players to keep an eye on when they face Germany, but no one elicits more focus than Cristiano Ronaldo, who is chasing history against the four-time world champions. In four previous meetings (totalling 360 minutes), he’s never found the net despite attempting 23 shots. Only against France (six matches), who Portugal take on in their final Group F game, has the five-time Ballon d’Or recipient played more international games without scoring. If he does break his duck then Ronaldo matches Miroslav Klose (19) for the most goals by a European player at the European Championship and World Cup combined.
- Germany: Following their opening loss against the French expect Germany boss Low to make significant changes. For one he could ditch the 3-4-2-1 formation utilised in that game. Even though it allows his side to greatly control the game, it does move Joshua Kimmich away from where he’s shown to be influential. The 26-year-old has thrived in midfield with Bayern, should Low revert to 4-3-3 then he’ll likely forge a stellar triumvirate with Kimmich alongside Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gundogan, instead of being deployed at right wing-back, where Die Mannschaft were becoming reliant on his crossing (Kimmich attempted seven against France).
