Hungary kick off their second successive EURO campaign against a Portugal team they also faced in the group stage of UEFA EURO 2016.
• The Hungarians have never beaten Portugal, although they led their Group F match in Lyon three times back in June 2016 before eventually settling for a draw – a result that meant they finished above the eventual champions at the top of the section.
• Portugal are unbeaten in their 13 previous matches against Hungary (W9 D4), scoring 30 goals and conceding only ten.
• Portugal beat Hungary home and away in qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. André Silva opened the scoring in Lisbon on 25 March 2017 before Cristiano Ronaldo's double secured a 3-0 win; Silva got the only goal in Budapest on 3 September the same year.
• The teams had shared a 3-3 draw at UEFA EURO 2016, Ronaldo also scoring twice in Lyon; Nani struck Portugal's other goal with Balázs Dzsudzsák getting two goals for Hungary after Zoltán Gera's opener.
• That is the only one of the last seven matches between the countries Portugal have failed to win.
• This is the sides' fourth UEFA European Championship contest; Portugal won 3-1 in Budapest and 3-0 in Lisbon in qualifying for UEFA EURO 2000, Rui Costa scoring in both games.
• Portugal were 3-1 winners against Hungary in Manchester in the group stage of the 1966 World Cup.
• The Portuguese have been victorious in all three of their games against Hungary in Budapest, winning 1-0 in qualifying for the 2010 World Cup – with a Pepe goal – in addition to their successes in 1998 and 2017. This is the teams' first match at the Puskás Aréna.
EURO facts: Hungary
• This is Hungary's second consecutive EURO finals. Their 2016 appearance was their first since 1972 and their first major tournament since the 1986 World Cup. Only four countries competed at the first two EURO final rounds the Magyars reached – in 1964 and 1972.
• In 2016 a team coached by Bernd Storck finished first in Group F on five points, level with Iceland but above them on head-to-head record, and two points ahead of eventual champions Portugal with eliminated Austria on one point. Hungary opened with a 2-0 win against Austria in Bordeaux, Ádám Szalai opening the scoring, before draws against Iceland (1-1) and Portugal.
• Belgium proved too strong in the round of 16, however, running out 4-0 winners in Toulouse – although three of those goals came in the final 12 minutes.
• Hungary have won two of their eight games at EURO final tournaments (D2 L4).
• Hungary were fourth in their UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying group, picking up 12 points from their eight games to finish behind Croatia, Wales and Slovakia – who are all also in the final tournament.
• Marco Rossi's side qualified for the EURO play-offs having finished second in their group in the 2018/19 UEFA Nations League, picking up ten points to end two behind Finland and one ahead of Greece.
• The Hungarians then won 3-1 in Bulgaria in their play-off semi-final but looked to be heading out as they trailed to Iceland in their final in Budapest, only for late goals from Loïc Négo (88) and Dominik Szoboszlai (90+2) to snatch a dramatic 2-1 victory and a place in the final tournament.
• Hungary are unbeaten in their last nine competitive matches (W6 D3), since a 3-2 loss at home to Russia in the UEFA Nations League on 6 September 2020.
• Hungary got to the final of the 1938 and 1954 World Cups, losing to Italy (in France) and West Germany (in Switzerland) respectively.
• Hungary's first match at the Puskás Aréna was a 2-1 friendly defeat by Uruguay on 15 November 2019. They lost the next game too, that 3-2 defeat against Russia, but were victorious at the third attempt, with that 2-1 play-off win against Iceland. Their record at the ground is W2 D2 L2.
• Hungary's overall record in Budapest is W229 D89 L83.
EURO facts: Portugal
• Portugal claimed their first major silverware at UEFA EURO 2016, defeating hosts France 1-0 in Saint-Denis thanks to Éder's extra-time goal.
• Fernando Santos's side had finished third in Group F behind Hungary and Iceland having drawn all three games, before beating Croatia 1-0 after extra time in the round of 16 and Poland 5-3 on penalties after their quarter-final had finished 1-1.
• A 2-0 semi-final win against Wales was Portugal's only victory inside 90 minutes at UEFA EURO 2016; it is the only one of their last eight EURO finals matches that was not all square after 90 minutes.
• Santos went on to guide Portugal to victory in the inaugural UEFA Nations League in 2019, the hosts beating Switzerland 3-1 in the semi-finals before a 1-0 final defeat of the Netherlands.
• Portugal were Group B runners-up in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying, finishing three points behind Ukraine and three ahead of Serbia. Portugal drew their first two games, both at home, against Ukraine (0-0) and Serbia (1-1), but won five of the next six (L1).
• The 2-1 reverse in Ukraine on 14 October 2019 is Portugal's only defeat in 22 EURO matches (W15 D6).
• Ronaldo scored 11 qualifying goals, one behind top scorer Harry Kane of England.
• Ronaldo has made the most appearances in EURO final tournaments (21). The competition's top scorer overall on 40 goals, he is the joint top marksman in final tournaments with Michel Platini on nine goals.
• Portugal are competing at their seventh consecutive EURO and their eighth in total.
• Portugal have won all three of their previous matches in Budapest, those three victories against Hungary. While this is their first game at the Puskás Aréna, they won both matches at the Népstadion, which was demolished in 2016 to make way for the new stadium that opened three years later.

• Nemanja Nikolić scored past Rui Patrício as Videoton beat Sporting CP 3-0 in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League group stage.
• Hungary's EURO play-off match-winner Dominik Szoboszlai was ruled out of the final tournament with a groin injury that has sidelined him since he joined Leipzig from Salzburg at the turn of the year.
• Hungary stretched their unbeaten run to 11 matches by beating Cyprus 1-0 and drawing 0-0 with the Republic of Ireland in their two pre-UEFA EURO 2020 friendlies, both played at the Ferenc Szusza Stadion in Budapest.
• András Schäfer's first international goal settled the contest against Cyprus, a game in which János Hahn and Bendegúz Bolla both made their Hungary debuts. Those two players were again involved against Ireland, when another player, Szabolcs Schön, earned his first cap and recalled goalkeeper Ádám Bogdán came off the bench to make his first international appearance for over five years.
• Hahn was the top scorer in the 2020/21 Hungarian top flight, with 22 goals for Paks, the two players just behind him – Fehérvár's Nemanja Nikolić (15) and Honvéd's Dániel Gazdag (13) – having also both made the UEFA EURO 2020 squad along with five members of the title-winning Ferencváros side – Dénes Dibusz, Gergő Lovrencsics, Dávid Sigér, Endre Botka and Bogdán.
• Ádám Lang was also a league champion in 2020/21, winning the Cypriot league with Omonoia, for whom he also started all six group games in the UEFA Europa League.
• Captain Ádám Szalai is the only player in Marco Rossi's squad who has scored at a major tournament. He found the net against Austria at UEFA EURO 2016 and is one of nine Hungarian survivors from that event along with Lang, Lovrencsics, Nikolić, Attila Fiola, László Kleinheisler, Ádám Nagy and unused goalkeepers Dibusz and Péter Gulácsi.
• Skipper Szalai is also the only player in the Hungary squad with more than 50 caps and ten international goals to his name, boasting respective tallies of 70 and 23.
• Portugal have lost just one of their last 15 internationals, winning ten, the latest a 4-0 success against Israel in Lisbon on 9 June in which Bruno Fernandes scored twice and Cristiano Ronaldo once. This followed a goalless stalemate against Spain in Madrid five days earlier.
• Pedro Gonçalves, the 23-goal breakout star of Sporting CP's 2020/21 Portuguese Liga triumph, made his international debut against Spain, goalkeeper Rui Silva following suit with a 90-minute outing in the win against Israel.
• Ronaldo's goal against Israel was his 104th for Portugal on his 175th appearance. All but 19 of those goals have come in competitive internationals, including 40 in the UEFA European Championship, nine of those at the finals, where he has appeared in 21 matches across four previous tournaments – more than any other player.
• One more goal at UEFA EURO 2020 will take Ronaldo above Michel Platini as the EURO final tournament's outright record scorer. The only other players in this Portugal squad to have found the net at previous EUROs are Pepe (two goals) and Renato Sanches (one).
• Portugal possess the three UEFA EURO 2020 participants with most EURO final tournament appearances, Pepe and João Moutinho each following Ronaldo on the list with 15. Rui Patricio is also in double figures with 12.
• Ronaldo, now 36, was Serie A's top scorer in 2020/21 with 29 goals for Juventus, with whom he also won the Coppa Italia. His fellow Portugal forward André Silva also had a prolific season, scoring 28 goals in the German Bundesliga for Eintracht Frankfurt.
• Two members of Portugal's UEFA EURO 2020 squad – Rúben Dias and Bernardo Silva – won the English Premier League in 2020/21, while LOSC Lille duo José Fonte and Sanches became champions of France and João Félix won the Spanish Liga with Atlético de Madrid. Joining Ronaldo as domestic cup winners were Borussia Dortmund's Raphaël Guerreiro and Paris Saint-Germain's Danilo.
• Of the six-home based players in the squad, three are from Portuguese champions Sporting, with João Palhinha and 18-year-old Nuno Mendes joining Gonçalves for their first taste of international tournament football.
• Eleven members of Portugal's triumphant UEFA EURO 2016 squad have returned, along with coach Fernando Santos, to defend the trophy this year – Ronaldo, Rui Patrício, Fonte, Pepe, Guerreiro, Danilo, Moutinho, Rafa Silva, Sanches, William Carvalho and Anthony Lopes.
• All 16 of the players who took the field for Portugal's victory on home soil at the 2019 UEFA Nations League finals have been called up for UEFA EURO 2020, including Gonçalo Guedes, who scored the winner in the final against the Netherlands.

Date of birth: 9 September 1964
Playing career: Torino, Campania, Campania Puteolana, Catanzaro, Brescia, Sampdoria, Club América, Eintracht Frankfurt, Piacenza, Ospitaletto, Salò
Coaching career: Lumezzane, Pro Patria, Spezia, Scafatese, Cavese, Honvéd (twice), DAC Dunajská Streda, Hungary
• Rossi launched his playing career as a defender with Torino and made his Serie A debut in March 1984. Later played for Campania, Catanzaro and – briefly – Brescia before joining Sampdoria in 1993. Won the Coppa Italia with Samp in 1994 before moving abroad to play in Mexico for Club América and in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt. His last professional club was Piacenza, finishing his career with lower-division outfits Ospitaletto and Salò.
• In 2004, he started coaching Lumezzane, subsequently taking charge of lower-league Italian clubs Pro Patria, Spezia, Scafatese and Cavese. He considered retiring before being appointed head coach of Honvéd in August 2012.
• In his first season in Budapest, the club made famous by Ferenc Puskás and Co in the 1950s finished third in the Hungarian top flight, but Rossi left in April 2014 – only to return, by popular demand, the following February. In 2016/17 the Italian defied the odds by steering Honvéd to a sensational Hungarian title triumph – the club's first league success for 24 years – but subsequently stepped down, pursuing his career instead across the border in Slovakia.
• He spent 2017/18 as head coach of DAC Dunajská Streda, a club with sizeable Hungarian support, leading them to third place in the Slovakian league and into a UEFA Europa League qualification spot.
• On 19 June 2018, Rossi returned to the country where he had made his name, becoming head coach of the Hungarian national team as the replacement for Belgian Georges Leekens.
Date of birth: 10 October 1954
Playing career: Benfica, Estoril (twice), Marítimo
Coaching career: Estoril, Estrela da Amadora, Porto, AEK Athens (twice), Panathinaikos, Sporting CP, Benfica, PAOK, Greece, Portugal
• A left-back, Santos – who holds a degree in electrical and telecommunications engineering – started his playing days at home-town club Benfica before spending most of his career with Estoril.
• He retired from playing in 1987, going immediately into coaching at Estoril, where he was head coach for six years, guiding the club to two promotions and into 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 again and Benfica.
• He then revived PAOK's fortunes after taking over in 2007, 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 the quarter-finals of UEFA EURO 2012. Repeated the feat for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, guiding Greece to the last 16, before stepping down.
• He was appointed by Portugal that September after Paulo Bento's departure and led them to UEFA EURO 2016 thanks to seven successive victories. The crowning glory was to come in France, Portugal remaining unbeaten throughout the tournament and defeating the hosts in the St-Denis final thanks to Éder's extra-time goal; two years later, Santos and his team reached the last 16 of the World Cup, following that with victory in the first UEFA Nations League, beating Switzerland and the Netherlands on home soil in the Finals.

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 2020 is Germany's 13th successive UEFA European Championship final tournament – they last missed out as West Germany in 1968.
• Germany are appearing in the finals for the 13th time, one more than Russia (includes appearances as USSR). This is the 11th tournament for Spain.
• Eight teams have qualified for the finals with a perfect record, including Belgium and Italy this time round. The others are France (1992 and 2004), the Czech Republic (2000), Spain and Germany (2012) and England (2016).
• 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 2016 Portugal's Real Madrid pair Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo 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 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. In 2012 Fernando Torres and Juan Mata both appeared in final wins for Chelsea and Spain.
• 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'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, 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 and Spain) and Manny Kaltz and Horst Hrubesch (1980, Hamburg and West Germany).
• Gábor Király is the oldest player to have appeared in a UEFA European Championship finals; he was aged 40 years 86 days in Hungary's 4-0 loss against Belgium 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.

:: 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 was 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.
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.
