Match background Only this chapter

Hungary have barely laid a glove on UEFA EURO 2016 Group F opponents Portugal in ten previous meetings.

Previous meetings
• Hungary's record against Portugal is W0 D3 L7 (W0 D0 L5 in competitive games).

• The nations' only final tournament encounter came at the 1966 FIFA World Cup, Portugal prevailing 3-1 at Old Trafford in their opening game. Both teams qualified from the group, ahead of Brazil and Bulgaria.

• Portugal breached the Hungary defence three times in both qualifiers for UEFA EURO 2000, the second victory taking them into the finals as the best runners-up. A decade later, a Pepe goal gave the Iberians a 1-0 victory in Budapest, with Simão Sabrosa scoring twice in the Lisbon return (3-0) as Portugal qualified for the World Cup in South Africa.

• The teams have been drawn together in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

See how Hungary qualified

EURO facts – Hungary
• This is Hungary's first EURO finals since 1972 and their first major final tournament since 1986. Only four countries competed at the two EURO final tournaments they reached – in 1964 and 1972.

• Hungary reached the final of the 1938 and 1954 World Cups, losing to Italy (in France) and West Germany respectively.

• The only Hungarian side to have played in Lyon in UEFA club competition is Debrecen, who lost 4-0 to Lyon in a 2009/10 UEFA Champions League group match.

EURO facts – Portugal
• Portugal are competing at their sixth successive EURO and their seventh in total. They have never failed to make it through the group stage.

Nani very satisfied with Portugal

• Portugal's greatest achievement is reaching the final of UEFA EURO 2004 on home soil, where they unexpectedly lost 1-0 to Greece.

• The 1984 EURO in France was Portugal's first – they reached the semi-finals, where they lost 3-2 to the hosts in extra time.

• Lyon hosted Portuguese clubs in seven UEFA games at the old Stade de Gerland. The Portuguese sides' record in those contests was W2 D3 L2.

Coach and player links
• Have played together:
Tamás Kádár (Hungary) and Danilo (Portugal) – Roda JC, 2012–13

• Hungary's Nemanja Nikolić scored past Portugal's Rui Patrício when Videoton defeated Sporting CP 3-0 in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League group stage.

Head coach Only this chapter

Bernd Storck

Date of birth: 25 January 1963
Nationality: German
Playing career: VfL Bochum 1848, Borussia Dortmund
Coaching career: VfB Stuttgart (assistant), Hertha BSC Berlin (assistant), VfL Wolfsburg (assistant), FK Partizan (assistant), Borussia Dortmund (assistant), FC Almaty, Kazakhstan Under-21s, Kazakhstan, Olympiacos FC (youth), Hungary Under-20s, Hungary

• Made his Bundesliga debut for Bochum at the age of 19 and spent two seasons at the club before joining local rivals Dortmund in 1983. A regular in the Dortmund defence for the next six seasons, he helped the club to victory in the German Cup in his final campaign, 1988/89; ended his playing career with eight goals in 171 Bundesliga appearances.

• Joined forces with leading German coach Jürgen Röber and acted as his assistant at Stuttgart, Hertha, Wolfsburg, Partizan and Dortmund. Moved abroad midway through 2008 to take charge of Kazakh top-flight club Almaty; was also appointed simultaneously as the Kazakhstan U21 coach.

• Named the Kazakhstan senior team's interim coach following the dismissal of Dutchman Arno Pijpers in autumn 2008. His first game in charge was a 5-1 defeat by England at Wembley in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier, but he was subsequently installed as the permanent head coach.

• However, Storck was sacked in October 2010 after presiding over four losses at the start of UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying and resurfaced at Olympiacos' youth team, taking charge for the inaugural UEFA Youth League group stage in 2013/14.

• In July 2015 he took charge of Hungary, having led the national side at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand the previous month, and promptly ended their 44-year absence from the UEFA European Championship thanks to a play-off defeat of Norway.



Fernando Santos

Date of birth: 10 October 1954
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: SL Benfica, CS Marítimo, Estoril Praia
Coaching career: Estoril Praia, CF Estrela da Amadora, FC Porto, AEK Athens FC (twice), Panathinaikos FC, Sporting Clube de Portugal, SL Benfica, PAOK FC, Greece, Portugal

• A left-back, Santos started his playing days at home-town club Benfica before two-year stints with Marítimo and Estoril-Praia. Retired in 1975.

• After a career change as a technician – Santos holds a degree in electrical and telecommunications engineering – he returned to football in 1987, taking over at former team Estoril-Praia. Stayed seven years, guiding them to two promotions and the Portuguese top flight.

• Had four seasons with Estrela da Amadora prior to joining Porto in 1998. Led his side to the Liga title in his first term, adding two domestic cups before departing for AEK in 2001. Again made an instant impact, lifting the 2002 Greek Cup. Went to Panathinaikos that summer followed by spells at Sporting, AEK and Benfica.

• He then revived PAOK's fortunes, steering them to runners-up spot in the 2009/10 Super League to earn a place in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round. Announced his departure in May 2010 and was confirmed as Otto Rehhagel's successor as Greece coach six weeks later, proving an immediate hit as he helped them to UEFA EURO 2012.

• Repeated the feat for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, guiding them to the last 16, before stepping down. He was appointed by Portugal that September after Paulo Bento's departure following a 1-0 defeat by Albania and led them to UEFA EURO 2016 thanks to seven successive victories.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA European Football Championship final tournament: Did you know?

• Spain (1964, 2008, 2012) and Germany (1972, 1980 – both as West Germany – 1996) are the competition's most successful sides having lifted the trophy three times each. Only France (1984, 2000) have also triumphed more than once.

• Only three teams have ever won the UEFA European Championship on home soil: Spain (1964), Italy (1968) and France (1984).

• In 2012 Spain became the first nation to retain the Henri Delaunay Cup, having also won in 2008. The Soviet Union (1960, 1964) and West Germany (1972, 1976) returned to the final as holders only to lose.

• Eight players have appeared in two victorious finals – Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas and David Silva all started Spain's triumphs in 2008 and 2012, with Fernando Torres starting in 2008 and coming on four years later and Xabi Alonso coming on in the 2008 final and starting in 2012. Rainer Bonhof twice picked up a winners' medal with West Germany (1972, 1980) but did not play in either tournament.

• Berti Vogts was a winner as a player with West Germany in 1972 and as Germany coach in 1996, making him the only man to triumph in both roles.

• Since 1980, when the final tournament expanded to become an eight-team event, the hosts or co-hosts have only failed to reach the semi-finals – or better – four times: Italy (1980), Belgium (2000), Austria and Switzerland (2008) and Poland and Ukraine (2012).

• UEFA EURO 2016 will be Germany's 12th successive UEFA European Championship final tournament – they last missed out as West Germany in 1968.

• Germany are appearing in the finals for the 12th time, one more than Russia (includes appearances as USSR). This is the tenth tournament for Spain.

• Six teams have qualified for the finals with a perfect record, including England this time round. The others are France (1992 and 2004), the Czech Republic (2000) and Spain and Germany (2012).

• The Netherlands' 6-1 defeat of Yugoslavia in the UEFA EURO 2000 quarter-finals is the biggest win in a final tournament. Three games have finished 5-0, most recently Sweden's 2004 defeat of Bulgaria.

• Three teams have held the UEFA European Championship and FIFA World Cup at the same time. West Germany won the European title in 1972 and added the world crown two years later, while France claimed the 1998 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000 and Spain triumphed at UEFA EURO 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. Spain's 2012 EURO victory made them the first country to win three major tournaments in a row; West Germany were within a shoot-out of achieving the feat before their 1976 loss to Czechoslovakia.

• For West Germany, Sepp Maier, Franz Beckenbauer, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Paul Breitner, Uli Hoeness and Gerd Müller played in both those finals, while Fabien Barthez, Marcel Desailly, Bixente Lizarazu, Lilian Thuram, Didier Deschamps, Youri Djorkaeff, Patrick Vieira, Zinédine Zidane and Christophe Dugarry achieved the feat for France.

• Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, Joan Capdevila, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres played in Spain's 2008 EURO final win and the 2010 World Cup success. Casillas, Ramos, Iniesta, Xavi, Fàbregas, Alonso and Torres appeared in all three of Spain's final wins between 2008 and 2012.

• In addition to the 24 players mentioned above, Dino Zoff (Italy 1968, 1982) and Germany's Thomas Hässler and Jürgen Klinsmann (1990, 1996) also featured in two final triumphs.

• In 2012 Spain's Chelsea FC pair Fernando Torres and Juan Mata joined a small group of players to have appeared in European Cup and UEFA European Championship final victories in the same year. Luis Suárez achieved the feat with FC Internazionale Milano and Spain in 1964, while in 1988 PSV Eindhoven quartet Hans van Breucklen, Ronald Koeman, Barry van Aerle and Gerald Vanenburg were all in the victorious Netherlands side.

• Wim Kieft and Nicolas Anelka narrowly missed out on this club. A European Champion Clubs' Cup finalist with PSV in 1988, Kieft was an unused substitute in the Netherlands' European Championship triumph, while Anelka was similarly thwarted with France in 2000 after appearing in Real Madrid CF's UEFA Champions League final. Anelka's Madrid team-mate Christian Karembeu holds the unique position of being an unused substitute in European Cup and European Championship final victories in the same year.

• In 2008 Germany's Michael Ballack, then with Chelsea FC, became the first player to appear in European Cup and EURO final defeats in the same year.

• Four players have followed European Cup final defeat with EURO victory in the same year: Ignacio Zoco and Amancio Amaro (1964, Real Madrid CF and Spain) and Manny Kaltz and Horst Hrubesch (1980, Hamburger SV and West Germany).

• Gábor Király is the oldest player to have appeared in a UEFA European Championship finals; he was aged 40 years 78 days in Hungary's 1-1 draw with Iceland at UEFA EURO 2016.

• The Netherlands' Jetro Willems is the youngest player to have featured; he was 18 years 71 days in the 1-0 defeat by Denmark at the 2012 finals.

• Ten players have appeared in four final tournaments: Lothar Matthäus, Peter Schmeichel, Alessandro Del Piero, Edwin van der Sar, Lilian Thuram, Olof Mellberg, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Gianluigi Buffon.

• Austria's Ivica Vastic is the oldest player to have scored, having found the net in a 1-1 draw against Poland at UEFA EURO 2008 aged 38 years and 257 days.

• Johan Vonlanthen was 18 years and 141 days old when scoring in Switzerland's 3-1 defeat by France at UEFA EURO 2004, making him the youngest player to have struck at the finals.

• Russia's Dmitri Kirichenko scored the fastest goal in a UEFA European Championship; his effort against Greece at UEFA EURO 2004 was timed at 67 seconds.

• There have been eight hat-tricks in a final tournament: Dieter Müller (1976), Klaus Allofs (1980), Michel Platini (1984, twice), Marco van Basten (1988), Sérgio Conceição (2000), Patrick Kluivert (2000) and David Villa (2008).

:: Team facts

EURO finals:
The UEFA European Championship was a four-team event in 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976 (when the preliminary round and quarter-finals were considered part of qualifying).

From 1980 it was expanded to an eight-team finals and remained in that format in 1984, 1988 and 1992 until 1996, when the 16-team format was adopted. UEFA EURO 2016 is the first tournament to be played as a 24-team finals.

Records of inactive countries
A number of UEFA associations have been affected by dissolution or splits of member associations. For statistical purposes, the records of these inactive countries have been allocated elsewhere: therefore, all Soviet Union matches are awarded to Russia; all West Germany – but not East Germany – matches are awarded to Germany; all Yugoslavia and Serbia & Montenegro matches are awarded to Serbia; all Czechoslovakia matches are allocated to both the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Abandoned/forfeited matches
For statisical purposes, when a match has been started and then abandoned but later forfeited, the result on the pitch at the time of abandonment is counted. Matches that never started and were either cancelled or forfeited are not included in the overall statistics.
