Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Follow all the action as Hungary host France in Euro 2020’s Group F this afternoon.

Hungary put up a valiant performance against Portugal in their opening game and can consider themselves bitterly unlucky not to have secured a point, having kept the defending champions at bay for 84 minutes only for a wicked deflection to finally break the deadlock. Cristiano Ronaldo’s late double ultimately rendered the scoreline a commanding 3-0 defeat, but that by no means reflected the fight Hungary had showed.

Nevertheless, it means Hungary must secure at least a point to keep their faint hopes alive of reaching the knockout stages, and that will be a serious struggle against world champions France. Didier Deschamps’ side were electric in their opening victory over Germany, with Mats Hummels’ own goal – made possible by a brilliant Paul Pogba pass – ensuring Les Bleus of all three points. For Hungary, a front three of Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Antonio Griezmann may prove impossible to subdue as France aim to secure their place in the last 16. Follow all the action below:

There will be more than 60,000 fans in the Puskas Arena today, the majority of which will be cheering on the home side Hungary.

But as the pictures come through from the stadium, there is clearly a lot of support for the world champions too.

Is this how you have to warm-up in order to win a major tournament? Is this what was missing from England’s preparation yesterday?

Euro 2020: Hungary vs France

France have not lost a match in normal time at a major tournament since the 2014 World Cup when they were beaten 1-0 in the quarter-finals by Germany.

They have also not lost to Hungary in a competitive game since 1971.

Safe to say recent history is with France when you look at this one on paper.

Wow. What do we think? I’m not too sure about it. It’s also not particularly form flattering.

Euro 2020: Hungary vs France

This is the Puskas Arena in Budapest where today’s match is being played.

Hungary will be buoyed by 61,000 fans inside the stadium, another capacity crowd to add to the raucous atmosphere they created against Portugal.

Jokes aside, today’s match should be a good one. France will want to lay another marker down to build on their impressive win over Germany. And Hungary will not want to leave it until the last game to try and pick the all important win which could take them through to the second round.

Whether they have the quality to keep Didier Deschamps side off for 90 minutes is a whole other discussion.

Coming off the back of a night watching England labour to a dismal goalless draw against Scotland in the pub, the sight of this man drinking beer pre-12am has only added to my bad mood.

At least he has water as well, I guess. I could learn from him.

How good was this man against Germany? His pace is simply frightening and the intelligence of his runs makes him a despicable nightmare for any defence.

Hungary have their hands full to the brim today.
