World champions France were at full strength for their opening Euro 2020 match against Germany on Tuesday with star forwards Antoine Griezmann, Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe spearheading a formidable attack.

Benzema is playing his first competitive international since France lost to Germany in the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup after being recalled to the national team by Didier Deschamps following a five-and-a-half-year exile.

Bayern Munich defenders Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez are included in the French defence for the Group F clash at the Allianz Arena, the pair's home club ground.

Both teams are captained by goalkeepers with Manuel Neuer between the sticks for Germany and Hugo Lloris in the French goal.

To counter the France attack, Germany coach Joachim Loew has named a three-man central defence as expected.

Chelsea centre-back Antonio Ruediger lines up alongside 2014 World Cup winners Mats Hummels and Matthias Ginter.

Real Madrid star Toni Kroos and Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan were named in central midfield with Joshua Kimmich and Atalanta's Robin Gosens on the flanks.

Thomas Mueller makes his 103rd Germany appearance as part of a three-man attack alongside Champions League winner Kai Havertz and Bayern team-mate Serge Gnabry.

France twice put the ball in the net in the second half but both were called back for offside. Mbappe sent a curling shot inside the far post midway through the half and then set up Karim Benzema for another late in the match. Germany had never previously lost an opening game in the group stage at the Euros.

Before the match started, a Greenpeace protestor parachuted into the stadium.

HUNGARY VS PORTUGAL

Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated becoming the first player to appear in five European Championships with a brace as they got their title defence off to a winning start with a 3-0 victory over a determined Hungary.

Ronaldo’s 87th-minute penalty after a foul on Rafa Silva meant he overtook Michel Platini for most European Championship goals scored, taking his tally to 10, after Raphael Guerreiro’s deflected goal had given them the lead three minutes earlier. Ronaldo, who missed a sitter in the first half, then delivered the final blow to a spirited Hungary side with a goal after a brilliant Portugal move in stoppage time.

Before Portugal’s goal rush, Hungary thought they had snatched a first win over the visitors in their 14th meeting much to the delight of a packed stadium when Szabolcs Schon had the ball in the net. But the winger’s effort was disallowed for offside in the build-up.
