Both Portugal and Germany had a very hard opening match but the results were very opposite. The Euro champions had an unbelievable last 10 minutes to win 3-0 against host Hungary. Meanwhile, the Tank lost 0-1 to France too brave.
This defeat also put Joachim Loew's teachers and students in a very difficult position. They must earn at least 1 point in this great battle to be able to maintain any hope of progressing. Similarly, Portugal is not allowed to lose this match because the last match has to face France. So, this is still a calculated battle between the two coaches.
