Thanks for joining us.

FT: The result means that Hungary top the group on five points whilst Iceland finish in second behind them on goal difference, they also have five points after they beat Austria and progress into the last-16. Portugal finish in third and also progress into the last-16, but Austria finish in fourth and bow out on one point.

FT: It could have been different had Elek fired home when he struck the post which could have put Hungary ahead again. Hungary’s two goals had a huge slice of good fortune with deflections helping Hungary go ahead on two separate occasions.

FT: It was a deserved result for Portugal who dominated possession and had the better chances in the game.

FT: So Portugal have come back twice to get a crucial point to finish third and progress into the knock-out stages of the competition as one of the four best third-placed teams.

HT: So will Hungary hold on or will Portugal find a winner to leapfrog their opponents? Join us again for the second-half.

HT: Hungary have looked dangerous on the break and can cause Portugal more problems should they have a counter-attack. Portugal will need to be more clinical if they are to progress into the knockout stages.

HT: Hungary have done exactly what Iceland did against Portugal and have scored against the run of play. You can take nothing away from Gera’s strike but Nani should have done much better with the clearance.

HT: Once again, Portugal have dominated possession as they have done against Iceland and Austria but they haven’t been clinical enough and missed a handful of chances with Nani heading over the bar and Mário firing the ball over the bar. Ronaldo has been quite quiet but he did go close when his freekick was palmed away by Király although his other two efforts were poor.

HT: So Nani has levelled the scores, he’s had a mixed half: guilty for Hungary’s opener and then finding the equaliser.
