UEFA Euro 2016: Belgium maul Ireland; Iceland, Hungary share the spoils

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 19 June 2016, 12:16 IST

Belgium posted their first victory in the Euro 2016 championship on Saturday, 18 June, with a 3-0 mauling of Ireland. Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the second half, while midfielder Axel Witsel scored once to seal the victory for the Red Devils.

In the second game of the day, Iceland put up a spirited performance against Hungary and led their opponents for most of the game following Gylfi Sigurdsson's 40th-minute penalty.

However, it all ended in heartbreak for the minnows as a Birkir Saevarsson own goal handed Hungary a point, leaving Iceland's hopes of making it to the next round hanging in the balance.

In the late night kick-off, a well-organised Austrian defence managed to hold Portugal to a goalless draw, as Cristiano Ronaldo missed a spot kick to leave Portugal with just two points from two games.

Results:

Belgium 3-0 Ireland

Iceland 1-1 Hungary

Portugal 0-0 Austria
