GOAL! Hungary 1-0 Portugal (Gera 19)
WHAT. A. GOAL. Zoltan Gera, playing in a defensive midfield role, has just scored one of the best goals of this tournament. After a Hungary corner was headed clear, the former West Brom man controlled the ball on his chest and rifled the ball low through a crowd of players into the bottom corner. Think Luka Modric’s goal, but hit with more pace, without the hair flick, and by the weaker foot of an ageing 37-year-old. Wow!
GOAL! Hungary 1-1 Portugal (Nani 41)
And just like that, Portugal are back in it. Ronaldo comes deep, is allowed to turn, but rather than shoot he picks out Nani’s run with a sumptuous pass that dissects three Hungary defenders. Nani takes the ball in his stride, and thunders a low shot inside Kiraly’s near post. That’s what happens when Ronaldo isn’t selfish. Portugal back in it!
GOAL! Hungary 2-1 Portugal (Dzsudzsak 47)
Hungary are in front again! After Szalai was brought down on the edge of Portugal’s area, Dzsudzsak steps up to take the free-kick, curling his effort towards the top corner. But it takes a deflection off Gomes in the wall, diverts and flies past Rui Patricio. Could the keeper have done better? Probably, it went in the middle of the goal.
GOAL! Hungary 2-2 Portugal (Ronaldo 49)
His first goal for Portugal in over a year. And what a time to get it. What a goal, too. Joao Mario gets free on the left, curls a brilliant ball to the six-yard box. It is slightly behind Ronaldo, but he improvises brilliantly, flicking the ball behind his front leg, and into the far corner. No chance for Kiraly. Cue his chest-puffing celebration. But my, that was special.
GOAL! Hungary 3-2 Portugal (Dzsudzsak 54)
He’s done it again! OK, not directly from the free-kick, his initial effort was blocked, but Hungary’s captain picked up the rebound, tried again, and ANOTHER deflected shot finds its way into the net, this time completely out of the reach of Rui Patricio.
GOAL! Hungary 3-3 Portugal (Ronaldo 62)
Ronaldo has done it again, and it’s Quaresma with his first touch that provided the assist, coming short for a corner and whipping an irresistible ball onto the head of Ronaldo, who nods past Kiraly from point blank range. Game on!
Full-time: Hungary 3-3 Portugal
The best match of the tournament comes to a close.
