Portugal heading out of Euro 2016?

Portugal were expected to breeze into the Euro 2016 knockout rounds given the quality of their rivals in Group F.

However, Iceland, Austria and Hungary have all proved over the past two weeks that they’re no pushovers.

Cristiano Ronaldo, after failing to score against both Iceland and Austria, will be desperate to set the record straight in the second half.

Nani, meanwhile, should also feel he has some making up to following his first-half efforts.

Update: Nani scores

Nani makes amends by scoring the equaliser on the stroke of half-time.
