Cristiano Ronaldo dominated the opening match in the group F of Euro 2020. It will be interesting to see how far and good Portugal goes in Euro 2020.


Interesting line-ups from the coaches

Coach of Portugal made a very interesting decision before the match. He started the game with a 4-4-3 formation. Cristiano Ronaldo was the main striker but he was attacking from the right wing. Diogo Jota, the striker of Liverpool, was playing in the center of the attacking line. During the game, Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Jota were changing positions. In most attacks, Cristiano was there from the deep midfield. Along with Ronaldo and Jota, Bernardo Silva was attacking also. The Man.City star won the Premier League title this season. He could not make a big impact on the game of the Champions League final. Although, he was in a good mood during the game and it seems that Portugal can make a difference with the attacking line. Bruno Fernanders was playing from behind. MU’s star’s main goal was connecting dots between the attacking line and midfield.


Boring first half and three goals in second

The first game of Portugal in the group was against Hungary. Both of the teams knew that there was a big chance of domination. The government of Hungary even gave access to 100% capacity of the stadium. Since the covid pandemic, it was the first time in Europe we saw a full stadium with the fans. That was a big test for Portugal to play against Hungary in their own stadium full of fans. So, First half was a little bit boring. Portugal was dominating the midfield. At the same time, they could not score a goal in the first 45 minutes. Everything changed after Hungary’s offside goal. Portugal’s coach saw a potential disaster, so he added two more attackers to win the game. That’s why Portugal scored three goals in the last 10 minutes of the game. Two of those goals were from Cristiano Ronaldo.
