The Real Madrid superstar scored twice to ensure his side took a point from a pulsating encounter
Portugal booked a last-16 clash with England as they played out a pulsating 3-3 draw with Hungary in the final Group F game at Euro 2016 on Wednesday, as Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score in four European Championship finals.
Portugal struggled throughout the clash with the unfancied Hungary, and fell behind to Zoltan Gera’s sweet first-half strike, though Nani equalised prior to half-time with a smart near post finish.
Balazs Dzsudzsak then netted a deflected free-kick to again give Hungary the lead, but Ronaldo hit back with a historic flick beyond the goalkeeper.
Dzsudzsak would not be denied, however, and sent another deflected drive past Rui Patricio, but Ronaldo again levelled with a towering header and ensured a second-placed finish for his side in Group F, thus confirming a meeting with Roy Hodgson’s men in Nice next week.
Hungary, impressively, progress to the knockout rounds as group winners.
