How Portugal could line up against Hungary

Portugal will be looking to make the perfect start to their Euro 2020 campaign when they take on Hungary in their Group F opener on Tuesday evening.

Fernando Santos's side, who are the holders of the trophy, having beaten France 1-0 in the final five years ago, will have a number of familiar names in their starting side for this contest.

However, they will be without the services of Joao Cancelo, who has tested positive for coronavirus and been replaced in the squad by Diogo Dalot, meaning that Nelson Semedo could feature at right-back for this match.

Manchester City duo Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias should both start, while Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes and Liverpool's Diogo Jota are also set to be named in the first XI.

Cristiano Ronaldo, of course, is also a guaranteed starter, but there is some uncertainty surrounding the left-back spot, where the excellent teenage defender Nuno Mendes is providing competition for Raphael Guerreiro.

The two midfield positions alongside Fernandes are also open for debate; William Carvalho is likely to receive one of them, while the other could be handed to Danilo.

There is an incredible amount of depth in the midfield areas, though, with Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and Renato Sanches also pushing for positions in the side.

The holders also have a lot of talent in the forward areas, with Andre Silva, Goncalo Guedes and Joao Felix likely to be the options off the bench on Tuesday evening.

Ronaldo will enter the match having scored 104 goals in 175 appearances at international level, and it will be fascinating to see how the 36-year-old performs at Euro 2020.

Portugal possible starting lineup: PatrIcio; Semedo, Dias, Pepe, Guerreiro; Danilo, W Carvalho, Fernandes; Bernardo, Ronaldo, Jota
