16:30UEFA Euro 2020Hungary v Portugal (Kick-off 5.00pm). Jacqui Hurley presents coverage of the opening match in Group F, as Cristiano Ronaldo and the current holders get their title defence under way at Puskas Arena in Budapest. Both teams will see victory here as vital to their chances, with this group also containing Germany and world champions France. These sides shared a six-goal thriller during Euro 2016, with Ronaldo and Balazs Dzsudzsak both scoring twice in a 3-3 draw during the group stage. That result meant Portugal sneaked through to the last 16 having drawn all three of their matches, but they made the most of their opportunity and went all the way, defeating hosts France in the final to lift the trophy for the first time. That tournament was Hungary's first appearance since 1972, and they qualified once again via the play-offs in late 2020, overcoming Bulgaria and Iceland to book their place at the finals
19:30UEFA Euro 2020France v Germany (Kick-off 8.00pm). Darragh Maloney presents all the action from the mouthwatering Group F fixture, which takes place at Fußball Arena München. This final match in the opening round of group games is arguably the most eagerly anticipated, with current world champions Les Bleus taking on Die Mannschaft, the side they replaced as World Cup victors. Both teams will want to lay down a marker here to show their potential to the other nations, especially group rivals and defending European champions Portugal, although expectations of a strong German campaign are more muted this year than in the past. Coach Joachim Low will step down at the end of the tournament and a dismal 2018 World Cup, a 6-0 loss to Spain and defeat at home to North Macedonia have damaged confidence, and being drawn alongside France, Portugal and Hungary has hardly helped matters. Their last meeting in this competition came in the 2016 semi-final, when two goals from Antoine Griezmann sealed a 2-0 victory for France at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille
