The Euro holders scored late to win the opening match of the European championship.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored two late goals and helped his team win 3-0 over Hungary. The match played in a 60,000 full-packed Puska Arena in Budapest.
The home side had done an excellent job of not letting the current Euro champions until the 84th minute when Raphael Guerreiro's shot deflected off Hungary's defender, which side-footed the goalkeeper and went into the back of the net.
Just a few minutes after opening the scoring, Willi Orban brought down Rafa Sliva and got a penalty for his team.
Then came the Ronaldo show, being quiet for almost the entirety of the game, including missing a sitter in the first half; he was not going to miss from the 12-yard.
And like always, in a crucial moment, the Juventus star did not miss as he fired from the spot to secure his team's win.
After scoring his first in this EURO edition, it did not take too long for him to increase his tally. Five minutes later, in the second minute of the stoppage time, the former Real Madrid player took the ball from the edge of the opponent's box and played one-twos with Rafa before cutting inside the goalkeeper and putting it into the empty net.

It was cruel for Hungary, who played well in the game but could not contain their opponent for the game's final ten minutes.
Talking about Cristiano, after his two goals in yesterday's match, the 36-year-old has made several records which he seems to do almost every game. He has edged past France legend Michel Platini's nine goals and become the highest goal scorer and the first player to score 10+ goals in the European Championship Final history.
Ronaldo also became the oldest player to score two goals in the competition's history. Moreover, he is also the first player to score in 11 consecutive major international tournaments, his first being at Euro 2004 when he was only 19.
The Portuguese captain is moving ever closer to another record, the most international goals in history, and is just three goals shy of leveling with Iranian striker Ali Daei (109). He will be eying to beat or at least equal that record in this Euro.
Later that evening, World Champion France faced Germany in Allianz Arena, which France won by 1-0. Mats Hummels scored an own goal in the 20th minute, which proved to be the decider.
