Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani have reason to remember past meetings with Iceland fondly as Portugal take on the final-tournament newcomers in their opening UEFA EURO 2016 Group F game.

Previous meetings
• Iceland and Portugal had never met until they were drawn together in qualifying for UEFA EURO 2012.

• Portugal won both matches, Cristiano Ronaldo leading the way in a 3-1 victory in Reykjavik and Nani scoring twice in a 5-3 triumph in the Porto return.

 

Portugal: Top five qualifying goals

EURO facts – Portugal
• Portugal are competing at their sixth successive EURO and their seventh in total. They have never failed to make it through the group stage.

• Portugal’s greatest achievement is reaching the final of UEFA EURO 2004 on home soil, where they unexpectedly lost 1-0 to Greece.

• The 1984 EURO in France was Portugal’s first – they reached the semi-finals, where they lost 3-2 to the hosts in extra time.

• Portugal’s record in qualifying was W7 D0 L1. They come to the finals on a seven-game competitive winning streak.

• Portuguese sides have played three games in Saint-Etienne in UEFA club competition. Vitória Setúbal drew 1-1 with St-Étienne in September 1962, but Benfica (1-0, November 1967) and Sporting CP (2-0, September 1974) lost on subsequent visits.

• Iceland qualified with a record of W6 D2 L2.

• Icelandic sides have played five games in France in UEFA club competition, losing all five of them by an aggregate score of 17-2.

Coach and player links
• Ronaldo has scored six EURO finals goals; he needs three more to match all-time record holder Michel Platini’s tally of nine for France. With 14 finals appearances, he is also within two games of the record of 16 shared by France’s Lilian Thuram and the Netherlands’ Edwin van der Sar.

• Play together:
Éder (Portugal) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (Iceland) – Swansea City

• Have played together:
William Carvalho (Portugal) and Eidur Gudjohnsen (Iceland) – Cercle Brugge, 2012–13

Ricardo Carvalho (Portugal) & Eidur Gudjohnsen (Iceland) – Chelsea, 2004–05

• During his time as Sweden coach, Iceland’s Lars Lagerbäck faced Portugal twice in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying, drawing both games 0-0.
