Portugal gets to win all their last five matches against Hungary that makes them the favorite in this campaign.

Birkir Saevarrson gets to create a goal which the team didn’t expect that lead them to a tie result with their rival. Never giving up in this campaign made Coach Bernd Storck happy with the performance of his men. Trying to seek possession in the clash and giving out the best on them have developed into an impressive stunt.
They are expected to use that same attitude as they face one of the crowd favorites in the competition, Portugal.
Frustration triggers after a goalless draw result over Austria. Cristiano Ronaldo who was well-known for penalty kick failed to generate a goal. He also attempted to make several shot but it didn’t work.
The line-up of Austria makes it hard for the star players of Portugal to convert a goal, a number of important stops were made by their contenders’ goalkeeper to ensure that the Portuguese squad will be unsuccessful in having a score.
Fernando Santo the manager of the team admitted that they had a hard time in the attacking defense that the Austrian had during the said rally. Although, devastated the Portuguese still hope that they will be able to bounce back as they face Hungary on their final group stage match.
Hungary is sure to finish in top three, while Portugal need a lot of working stuff to do. The Portuguese side needs to convert a goal to finish on third place – a sure win or a draw result will assure them to fight for a slot in the next leg of the European tournament.
