At half-time in the two games, France and Portugal were drawing 1-1 and Germany were losing 1-0 in Munich against Hungary. As things stood, it meant Portugal were on track to finish second behind table-toppers France, with Hungary third on four points and Germany bottom with three points.

However, an exciting second half in Munich saw Germany first equalise through Kai Havertz before Hungary went straight up the other end and restored their lead.

At that stage, Germany were leading out of the tournament, but a late goal by Leon Goretzka ensured a 2-2 draw and a second-placed finish in Group F ahead of Portugal on goal difference, after their game against France also ended 2-2.
