Fernando Santos: 'Cristiano Ronaldo will score against Hungary'

Portugal manager Fernando Santos is "absolutely sure" that Cristiano Ronaldo will break his Euro 2016 duck against Hungary in their final group game.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos has said that he is "absolutely sure" Cristiano Ronaldo will score against Hungary in their final Euro 2016 group game on Wednesday.

The Real Madrid star is yet to find the back of the net in France this summer and was responsible for a number of missed opportunities, including a penalty, in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Austria.

Portugal hit the woodwork twice and fired 23 shots on goal during that match, but Santos is confident that his side, and Ronaldo in particular, will find their shooting boots in Lyon.

"Ronaldo is a player who scores a lot of goals and I'm absolutely sure he will score in the next game against Hungary," he told reporters.

"It was the first time [against Austria] we failed to score under my reign. We created many chances, we didn't score, but I think we will next time. It doesn't matter if we play better or ugly football."

Portugal's place at the tournament is hanging in the balance heading into their final group game, with Santos's side sitting third in Group F having amassed just two points from games against Iceland and Austria.
