Portugal kick off their European Championship title defence with a trip to Budapest to face Hungary.

The Portuguese beat France in the Euro 2016 final in Paris to lift the trophy, but have had to wait five years to defend their crown given Euro 2020 was delayed by a year due to the pandemic.

Portugal have been dealt a tough hand with France and Germany also in Group F, but an opening game against Hungary offers Cristiano Ronaldo and his side a great chance of getting off the mark with a win.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Hungary v Portugal is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.

The match will be held at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest, Hungary.
