The Hungary vs Portugal Euro 2020 game starts today (Tuesday, June 15) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN and ABC. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.
The Hungary vs Portugal live stream is coming up soon, and it kick-starts Group F's action at Euro 2020.
Hungary find themselves in the unenviable position of an opener with Portugal in Budapest. And not only are they facing the current European Champions, but they've also been grouped with reigning world champions France, plus Germany — who are one of the best international sides in footballing history.
Hungary will stay positive, though: they bring a close-knit squad to the competition off the back of an 11-match unbeaten run, even if they did book their spot in the finals through playoffs. Home advantage should also help, and in Bundesliga-based pair Willi Orban (centre-back) and Peter Gulacsi (goalkeeper) they have the talent to contain the Portuguese attack in the final third.

That brings us nicely to the reigning European champs, Portugal, who won the competition back in 2016. They arguably have a better squad now than five years ago: Cristiano Ronaldo needs no introduction, but the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Diogo Jota and Joao Felix all head into this tournament on the back of stellar domestic seasons.
The game kicks off today (Tuesday, June 15) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT, and you can watch it all live, for free, wherever you are.
