Matchday 2 in UEFA EURO 2020 Group F brings another heavyweight contest as holders Portugal travel to Munich to take on three-time champions Germany.
• Germany already have ground to make up in the section having gone down 1-0 to France in their opening fixture, Mats Hummels' 20th-minute own goal separating the sides at the Football Arena Munich.
• That left Germany three points adrift of both France and Portugal, who finally saw off Hungary in Budapest in the final ten minutes on Matchday 1. Raphaël Guerreiro's deflected goal broke the deadlock in the 84th minute at the Puskás Aréna before Cristiano Ronaldo converted a penalty (87) and then slotted in his second goal and Portugal's third two minutes into added time.
• Ronaldo is now the outright top scorer in EURO final tournaments, with 11 goals; he had been level with previous record holder Michel Platini on nine. The Portugal forward is also the first player to feature, and score, in five EURO final tournaments.
• The most recent of the sides' 18 contests came in the 2014 FIFA World Cup group stage, Thomas Müller scoring a hat-trick and Hummels supplying the other goal in a 4-0 Germany win in Salvador, Brazil on their way to lifting the trophy. Portugal lost Pepe to a 37th-minute red card, by which time they were two goals down.
• That made it four successive Germany victories against Portugal, who have not beaten the Mannschaft since a 3-0 triumph on Matchday 3 at UEFA EURO 2000. Sérgio Conceição scored a hat-trick in Rotterdam to confirm holders Germany's elimination from the competition.
• Germany, however, have since beaten Portugal 3-1 in the third-place play-off at the 2006 World Cup and twice at EURO final tournaments. Joachim Löw's side were 3-2 victors in Basel in the UEFA EURO 2008 quarter-finals, before Mario Gomez scored the only goal in the group stage in Lviv four years later.
• Those results mean Germany have won ten of the 18 matches between the sides, compared to three Portuguese victories. One of those Portuguese successes came in Germany, however, a 1-0 win in Stuttgart in World Cup qualifying in October 1985 – West Germany's first ever defeat in a World Cup qualifier.
• The teams were in the same group at the 1984 UEFA European Championship, playing out a goalless draw in Strasbourg on Matchday 1; Portugal went on to finish second in the section and reach the semi-finals, with holders West Germany eliminated in third place.
• Germany's home record against Portugal is W3 D2 L1.
• That UEFA EURO 2000 victory is Portugal's only success in their last nine matches against Germany (W5 D3).
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; their win against Hungary on Matchday 1 of UEFA EURO 2020 is only the second of their last nine 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 23 EURO matches (W16 D6).
• Ronaldo scored 11 qualifying goals, one behind top scorer Harry Kane of England.
• Ronaldo has also made the most appearances in EURO final tournaments; he now has 22 to his name, and is the competition's top scorer overall on 42 goals.
• Portugal are competing at their seventh consecutive EURO and their eighth in total.
• Portugal's record in Germany overall, including matches against West and East Germany, is W8 D3 L5. They finished fourth at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, where their record was W4 D1 L2.
• This is Portugal's second match at the Football Arena Munich; they lost the 2006 World Cup semi-final 1-0 to France at the stadium, their only previous game in Munich.
EURO facts: Germany
• The Mannschaft are participating in their 13th successive EURO since missing out on the final tournament as West Germany in 1968, their first attempt.
• EURO winners in 1972, 1980 and 1996 – and three-time runners-up – Germany last missed out on the semi-finals in 2004, when they did not make it through the group stage. With three European titles, they are the competition's joint record winners alongside Spain.
• Germany were again semi-finalists at UEFA EURO 2016, losing 2-0 to hosts France in the last four. The then-world champions had finished first in their section before beating Slovakia (3-0) and Italy (1-1, 6-5 pens) in the knockout rounds.
• Löw's side won seven of their eight qualifiers (L1) to book their place at UEFA EURO 2020. Having suffered their sole defeat, 4-2 at home to the Netherlands on 6 September 2019, Germany scored 15 goals in winning their last four matches.
• This is Germany's 26th successive appearance in a World Cup or EURO final tournament.
• Matchday 1 was Germany's first game in Munich since a goalless UEFA Nations League draw against France in September 2018. The defeat by the same opponents in their UEFA EURO 2020 opener gave them the overall record of W13 D5 L8 in the city. They have won four of their eight matches at the Football Arena Munich (D1 L3), although their joint heaviest UEFA European Championship loss came at the stadium, a 3-0 reverse against the Czech Republic in UEFA EURO 2008 qualifying.
• Germany won both games at the Football Arena Munich at the 2006 World Cup, beating Costa Rica 4-2 in the group stage and Sweden 2-0 in the round of 16. They also lifted the World Cup in the city in 1974 after a 2-1 victory over the Netherlands in the final; it was the hosts’ only fixture in Munich during that tournament.

• Timo Werner beat Anthony Lopes from the penalty spot as his Leipzig team drew 2-2 at Lyon in the UEFA Champions League group stage on 10 December 2019.
• Müller scored past Rui Patrício in Bayern's 7-1 win against Sporting CP in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg in the Football Arena Munich. João Moutinho scored Sporting's goal.
• Werner scored a penalty past Anthony Lopes as Leipzig and Lyon drew 2-2 in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage. In that season's semi-finals, Gnabry scored twice past Lopes as Bayern beat OL 3-0.
• Danilo's goal helped Porto to a 3-1 win at home to Leipzig in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage; Werner got the visitors' reply.
• Joshua Kimmich was in the Germany side that beat André Silva's Portugal 1-0 in the 2014 UEFA European Under-19 Championship final in Budapest.
• João Félix and Bruno Fernandes both scored against German clubs in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League group stage – the former in Atlético de Madrid's 1-1 home draw against Bayern on Matchday 5, the latter from the penalty spot for Manchester United in a 3-2 defeat at Leipzig on Matchday 6. Bernardo Silva also scored in a 2-0 win for Manchester City in the first leg of their round of 16 tie with Borussia Mönchengladbach.
• Ronaldo has scored 28 goals against German clubs in UEFA competition, more than any other nation. Ronaldo has hit nine UEFA Champions League goals against Bayern München, all past Manuel Neuer, including two doubles in Munich. However, he has yet to score in four internationals for Portugal against Germany, all of which have resulted in defeat.
• Ronaldo scored five of Real Madrid's six goals against Bayern in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League quarter-final. Neuer, however, had saved from the Portuguese forward in the shoot-out as Bayern won the sides' 2011/12 semi-final on penalties.
• Kai Havertz scored the winner for Chelsea in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final against a Manchester City side featuring Rúben Dias and Bernardo Silva. Antonio Rüdiger and Timo Werner also started the game for the London club.
• Ronaldo's double against Hungary on Matchday 1 means he has scored in every one of the 11 final tournaments in which he has played – five UEFA European Championships, four FIFA World Cups, one FIFA Confederations Cup and one UEFA Nations League. The 36-year-old has now accumulated 23 goals in 45 tournament appearances.
• Ronaldo's second goal against Hungary was his 106th for Portugal on his 176th appearance – just three shy of the world record held by Iran’s Ali Daei – and his 85th in his 125th competitive international.
• Portugal have lost just one of their last 16 matches, winning 11, including a 4-0 success against Israel in Lisbon on 9 June in which Bruno Fernandes scored twice and 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.
• Raphaël Guerreiro’s strike against Hungary was his third goal for Portugal and first in a competitive game. He joined Ronaldo, Pepe and Renato Sanches as the only players in the UEFA EURO 2020 squad to have scored a EURO finals goal for Portugal.
• Portugal possess the three UEFA EURO 2020 participants with most EURO final tournament appearances, Pepe and João Moutinho each following record-breaker Ronaldo on the list with 16. Rui Patricio is also in double figures with 13.
• Ronaldo 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 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.
• The defeat by France on Matchday 1 was Germany's third in their last four tournament matches, having lost two of their three games at the 2018 World Cup – both of those also without scoring. It is the second successive major finals in which Germany have lost their opening match and the first time they have done so at the UEFA European Championship.
• Having also lost the UEFA EURO 2016 semi-final 2-0 to France, it is only the second time that Germany have ever lost successive EURO final tournament matches, after succumbing back-to-back to England (0-1) and Portugal (0-3) in 2000. They have never lost three in a row.
• Germany's two pre-UEFA EURO 2020 friendlies brought a 1-1 draw with Denmark in Innsbruck and a 7-1 romp against Latvia in Düsseldorf in which there were seven different goalscorers, the first of them, Robin Gosens, opening his account for the Mannschaft.
• Those two games were notable for the return of erstwhile stalwarts Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller, neither of whom had played for Germany since November 2018. Christian Günter had an even longer wait for a return to national colours, his second cap, as a substitute in the draw against Denmark, coming seven years after his first, while Kevin Volland's appearance in Innsbruck was his first since November 2016.
• The game against Latvia was also a significant one for goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer as it was his 100th international appearance for Germany, making him the third centurion in the UEFA EURO 2020 squad alongside Müller and Toni Kroos (now both 103 caps) and the first German goalkeeper ever to reach that landmark.
• Twelve players have survived Germany's shock group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup to retain their places in Joachim Löw's selection this time around, though only eight remain from UEFA EURO 2016 – Neuer, Hummels, Müller, Kroos, Joshua Kimmich and non-World Cup participants Bernd Leno, Emre Can and Leroy Sané.
• Remarkably no player in Germany's UEFA EURO 2020 squad has ever scored in the EURO finals, Müller having now competed in 12 final tournament matches without a goal, Kroos in 11 and Hummels – an own goal scorer against France – in ten. Müller, who in contrast has scored ten World Cup final tournament goals, even missed his penalty in the 2016 quarter-final shoot-out against Italy.
• Eight members of Bayern München's 2020/21 Bundesliga-winning side have been selected for this squad – Neuer, Kimmich, Sané, Müller, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Niklas Süle and Jamal Musiala, the youngest player in the party at 18.
• Other 2020/21 trophy winners in the squad are Dortmund pair Hummels and Can, who won the DFB-Pokal, Manchester City's Premier League champion İlkay Gündoğan, and UEFA Champions League winners Antonio Rüdiger, Timo Werner and final goalscorer Kai Havertz of Chelsea.
• There were 21 members of Löw's EURO squad in UEFA Champions League action during the 2020/21 season, plus Leno in the UEFA Europa League, with only Freiburg's Günter, Monaco's Volland, Eintracht Frankfurt's Kevin Trapp and Leeds United's Robin Koch not involved in continental club competition.

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.
Date of birth: 3 February 1960
Playing career: Freiburg (three times), Stuttgart, Eintracht Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Schaffhausen, Winterthur, Frauenfeld
Coaching career: Winterthur (youth), Frauenfeld, Stuttgart, Fenerbahçe, Karlsruhe, Adanaspor, Tirol Innsbruck, Austria Wien, Germany (assistant), Germany
• A native of the Black Forest in south-west Germany, Löw spent most of his playing days with local club Freiburg, where he had three spells, before winding down his career in Switzerland.
• Operated as a player-coach in Switzerland before becoming an assistant, and later head coach, back in Germany with Stuttgart. Succeeded Rolf Fringer in 1996 and led the Swabian side to a German Cup win in his first season and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final against Chelsea in his second.
• Left Stuttgart for Fenerbahçe but struggled to match his early success until he joined Tirol Innsbruck, guiding the team to the 2001/02 Austrian Bundesliga title. After nine months with Austria Wien he was summoned by old friend Jürgen Klinsmann to become his assistant with Germany. The pair steered the Nationalmannschaft to a third-place finish on home soil at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
• Replaced Klinsmann as head coach, taking the side to the UEFA EURO 2008 final and third place at the 2010 World Cup. They also reached the last four of UEFA EURO 2012, before qualifying unbeaten for the 2014 global finals. The real glory was to follow in Brazil, Löw leading the team to their fourth world title with a 1-0 final defeat of Argentina.
• Germany were unable to add the European title to their world crown, losing to hosts France in the UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals. Löw led the team to a 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup triumph in Russia but a year later, in the same country, the holders' World Cup defence ended unexpectedly in the group stage.

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.
• England's Jude Bellingham is the youngest player to have featured; he was 17 years and 349 days when he came on as a substitute against Croatia on Matchday 1 of UEFA EURO 2020.
• Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to appear, and score, in five EUROs with his two goals against Hungary on Matchday 1 at UEFA EURO 2020. Twenty-one players have appeared in four final tournaments: Lothar Matthäus, Peter Schmeichel, Alessandro Del Piero, Edwin van der Sar, Lilian Thuram, Olof Mellberg, Gianluigi Buffon, Petr Čech, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andreas Isaksson, Kim Källström, Jaroslav Plašil, Lukas Podolski, Tomáš Rosický, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Darijo Srna, Giorgio Chiellini, Sebastian Larsson, Luka Modrić, João Moutinho and Pepe.
• 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 257 days.
• Johan Vonlanthen was 18 years 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 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.
