Full-time: Portugal 0-0 Austria
Peep! Peep! Peeeeeeeeeeep! I’m not sure how that game ended scoreless, but it has. Cristiano missed several great chances tonight, not least the penalty from which he hit the upright. Austria were under the cosh for much of the game, but had chances of their own to win the game. They must beat Iceland to advance to the second round. On two points, Portugal will need a result against Hungary if they are to go through to the knockout stages.
90+3 min: Sebastien Prodl wins the ball deep in his opwn half and plays it up the field. This is tense.
90+2 min: Austria drive forward, with Schopf and Hinterseer combining again. They win a throw-in deep in Portugal territory, but the ball ends up going out for a goal-kick.
90+1 min: We’re into the first of three minutes of added time. Withy the number of late goals this tournament has produced thus far, who’d bet against one here?
90 min: Austria win a corner after good work down the left from Schopf, who attempted to pick out his fellow substitute Hinterseer with a cross from deep.
89 min: Silva makes an immediate impression, charging down the inside left before drilling in a cross that’s hacked clear.
87 min: Austria substitution: Stefan Ilsanker off, Kevin Wimmer on. Portugal substitution: Nani off, Rafa Silva on.
86 min: That was a good decision - Ronaldo was standing a yard offside as that free-kick was being taken. He looks on the verge of tears.
85 min: From over by the touchline, the ball’s floated into the penalty area, where Ronaldo heads it home. Offside!
84 min: Austria substitution: Marcel Sabitzer off, Lukas Hinterseer on. Portugal have a free-kick wide on the right.
84 min: Portugal substitution: Andre Gomes off, Eder on.
82 min: We’ve had five penalties at Euro 2016 so far and that’s the first that’s been missed. Interestingly, it’s the first one Portugal have ever been awarded in European Championship finals history.
80 min: Karma’s a bitch, eh? Ronaldo steps up, waits for Austria goalkeeper Robert Almer to dive to his left, before rolling the ball against the base of the left upright.
All of Iceland and Austria giggle as Cristiano Ronaldo hits the left upright.
PENALTY FOR PORTUGAL
Martin Hinteregger wrestles Cristiano Ronaldo to the ground in the Austria penalty area.
76 min: This match is getting more and more scrappy the longer it goes on, with constant interruptions for niggley fouls, free-kicks and throw-ins. Austria aren’t as under the cosh as they were earlier, it must be said and you can sense the Portuguese nerves.
73 min: Austria win a free-kick about 10 yards outside the Portugal penalty area. With David Alaba gone off the field, Marko Arnautovic will take this one. Or will he? No, is the answer. Instead, Marcel Sabitzer dinks it over the wall in a training ground manoeuvre that goes horribly wrong. Arnautovic is not one bit happy, having had to suffer the indignity of Alaba pulling rank on him at a previous free-kick.
69 min: Julian Baumgartlinger is very lucky to avoid a booking for a nasty stamp on the instep of Joao Moutinho. Portugal substitution: Ricardo Quaresmo off, Joao Mario on.
66 min: Ricardo Quaresma gets down the right and sends a woeful cross straight into the hands of Robert Almer.
64 min: Baumgartlinger concedes a free-kick about three yards outside the Portuguese penalty area, right-hand side. Ronaldo stands over the ball, then sends it fizzing over the cross-bar. Austria substitution: David Alaba off after an uncharacteristically ineffective display, Alessandro Schopf on.
63 min: Martin Harnik wins his side a throw-in deep in Portugal territory. Julian Baumgartlinger attempts to cross the ball into the Portuguese penalty area, but his effort is deflected into the hands of Rui Patricio off Guerreiro.
62 min: Another corner for Portugal, which Christian Fuchs heads clear at the near post.
61 min: Quaresma chips the dead ball into the Austria penalty area, where it’s headed clear by Martin Hinteregger.
60 min: Fuchs gets booked for a trip on Ricardo Quaresma in the space between the side line and the edge of the Austria penalty area. Free-kick for Portugal.
59 min: Austria enjoy a rare sortie into Portuguese territory, but cede possession when Christian Fuchs hoists a cross into the air and out of play for a goal kick.
56 min: Cristiano Ronaldo unleashes a rasping, swerving drive from outside the penalty area, which Almer does well to put around the post with a strong left hand. That’s a great save. From the corner, Ronaldo leaps highest and plants a downward header straight at Almer. It’s all Portugal here, but they just can’t score.
55 min: Andre Gomes goes a galloping into the Austria penalty area, but runs down a blind alley in which three opposition defenders lurk.
54 min: Joao Moutinho wins a free-kick for Portugal deep in Austria territory, over by the touchline, after being fouled by Christian Fuchs. Raphael Guerreiro’s delivery is dismal.
54 min: Joao Moutinho drills the ball into the penalty area towards Nani, but Hinteregger hacks clear.
53 min: Portugal win a corner, which prompts Nani to signal the crowd to make a bit more noise. They duly oblige, but Austria clear the ensuing inswinger.
51 min: Pepe surges forward and plays the ball to Nani on the edge of the Austria penalty area., He has his back to goal and is crowded off the ball.
49 min: Ricardo Quaresmo curls a cross into the Austria penalty area, aiming for Nani. His delivery is overhit and Austria clear. On the edge of the penalty area, a glowering Ronaldo was expecting the ball to be pulled his way.
48 min: Portugal free-kick, about 40 yards from the Austria goal, well right of centre. Cristiano Ronaldo gives it the full Jonny Wilkinson before driving his free-kick into the Austria wall.
47 min: Martin Harnik gets booked for catching Coutinho with his trailing leg.
47 min: Rui Patricio is forced into action early in the second half, the Portugal keeper forced to dive low to his right to keep out a fine low drive from Austria defensive midfielder Stefan Ilsanker.
Second half: Portugal 0-0 Austria
46 min: Austria get the second half under way with no changes in personnel on either side.
Half-time: Portugal 0-0 Austria
Austria have done well to weather a Portuguese storm in the first-half of a very open game that has, curiously, remained scoreless. Both teams have had chances, with Cristiano Ronaldo missing the best of the lot, while the otherwise anonymous David Alaba went exceedingly close with a free-kick.
44 min: Christian Fuchs attempts a clearance that goes out of play for a throw-in off his team-mate Martin Harnik.
43 min: Andre Gomes swings a cross into the Austrian penalty area from a little pocket of space just outside the box on the right flank. It’s headed clear.
39 min: David Alaba is brought down just outside the Portugal penalty by Pepe as the Portuguese centre-half frantically tries to prevent the Austrian playmaker from getting a cross in from the right. Free-kick for Austria just outside the penalty area. David Alaba attempts to whip the ball inside the far post, but Vieirinha heads it clear off the line. Great free-kick, great defending. And a yellow card for Pepe.
36 min: Portugal win a corner, with Quaresma putting the ball out of play off Fuchs. Quaresma and Coutinho play it short, setting up a move that ends with Ronaldo hooking the ball into the arms of Almer from seven yards. He had to reach backwards to connect with that ball and was unable to get any power on his effort.
33 min: Ricardo Quaresmo charges through the centre and plays a low diagonal ball out to Nani on the right. Ronaldo meets his curled cross with a firm downward header, which Robert Almer does well to keep out. It wouldn’t have counted if it had gone in, as the linesman flags for offside. Incorrectly, as it happens.
30 min: Ricardo Quaresmo gets booked for dissent after being penalised for a petulant kick at Sebastian Prodl.
29 min: Portugal go close again, with Nani heading against the upright.
27 min: The referee ignores fouls on two different Austrian players before blowing his whistle to penalise Florian Klein for clattering into the back of Cristiano Ronaldo.
24 min: This game began as a fairly open contest, but Portugal have wrestled control from their Austrian opponents. Austria will do well to makje it to half-time without conceding. David Alaba is not having one of his better days at the office.
20 min: Cristiano Ronaldo misses a sitter from eight yards after being teed up by a low Nani pass from the left. A sad end to a scintillating bit of build-up play from Portugal. You’d expect Ronaldo to drill that home in his sleep, but he pulled the ball a couple of feet wide of the left upright.
18 min: Martin Hinteregger plays a back-pass to his goalkeeper which Robert Almer neither wanted nor expected. The goalkeeper blasts it straight back towards the centre-back and the ball ricochets off his legs and out for a corner. Nothing comes of it.
17 min: Minor handbags between Nani and Marko Arnautovic after good Austria play down the left flank between the Stoke City midfielder and Christian Fuchs.
17 min: Ronaldo has been sporting a big goofy grin on his chops since the teams emerged from their dressing rooms and it remains in place as he’s penalised for being in an offside position as he pounced on a through ball from Coutinho.
15 min: Almer saves again, this time from the corner he conceded courtesy of his save from Vieirinha.
12 min: Chance! Vieirinha the Portuguese full-back brings a smart save out of Robert Almer with a shot from distance that took a defelction en route to the Austrian goal. Seconds previously, Almer was forced to save with his feet from Nani in a one-on-one after the Portuguese forward had scythed through the Austrian defence. Good goalkeeping.
11 min: Portugal enjoy a spell of possession that ends when Joao Moutinho attempts to curl a cross into the Austria penalty area from the right flank. Prodl intercepts and attempts to send his side off on the counter.
9 min: Martin Harnik is penalised for a late challenge on Ricardo Carvalho, giving Portugal a free-kick deep inside their own half.
8 min: Florian Klein gets back to intercept a cross-field pass from Ricardo Quaresma to Nani on the edge of the Austria penalty area. Good defending.
8 min: Ricardo Carvalho gets a ticking off from the Italian referee for a late challenge on Martin Harnik.
6 min: Joao Moutinho attempts to thread a pass into the Austria box, but the takes a deflection off Stefan Islanker, loops up in the air and drops nicely for Nani, who heads a great chance over the bar. A lively start.
4 min: Chance! Harnik gives Pepe the slip and leaps unchallenged to get on the end of a Sabitzer cross from the right. From about six yards out, he plants a meaty header wide. He should have scored.
3 min: Pepe almost costs his side dear with a woefully underhit back-pass to his goalkeeper Rui Patricio, which the goalkeeper does well to clear under pressure from Marcel Sabitzer.
1 min: From deep, Pepe plays a long diagonal ball towards Ronaldo on the left side of the Austria penalty area, which Florian Klein heads out for a corner. The ball’s swung into the Austria penalty area, where goalkeeper Robert Almer puts it out for Portugal’s second corner of the game. Nothing comes of it, as William Carvalho hits it towards his namesake Ricardo. He sends it well wide.
Portugal v Austria has kicked off ...
1 min: Christian Fuchs wins the toss and elects to receive, so Portugal get the ball rolling. Their players wear red shirts, red shorts and green socks. Austria’s wear white shirts, black shorts and white socks. Nani plays the ball to Joao Moutinho and it’s game on.
Not long now ...
The teams march out of the tunnel at the Parc des Princes and line up alongside the match officials for the national anthems. Ronaldo leads out Portugal, while Christian Fuchs wears the armband for Austria.
Cristiano Ronaldo: record-breaker

Ronaldo will also join France’s Lilian Thuram and the Netherlands’ Edwin van der Saar on top of the all time European Championships appearances table with 16, a record he is sure to make his own - fitness permitting - against Hungary next week.

Austria manager Marcel Koller speaks
“We need to be more clinical with our chances, play more compactly and be calmer defensively,” he said. “We knew that Hungary could play well, but we didn’t show on the pitch what we’re capable of. We lost the ball too often and didn’t use our chances. We also made a few mistakes that Hungary punished with two of their four shots. Only defending isn’t enough at this level. You have to do it well as a team, but you need to have footballers up top to use the chances. The 1-1 [against Iceland] probably wasn’t the result Portugal had hoped for, so I think it’ll be an interesting game between two good teams tomorrow night.”
Portugal manager Fernando Santos speaks
“It’s a different game,” he said in his pre-match press conference. “I have confidence in all my players. We have the determination and ability to get the result we want. All four sides in our group are very strong. We have to play our best, but the primary objective is to win. They’re a side with a lot of quality and balance.We are confident, we have quality, talent and ability to get the result we want.”
Austrian midfielder Aleksandr Gragovic sits this match out on the naughty step following the red card he picked up for two bookable offences against Hungary, while Zlatko Junuzović also misses out for Austria after picking up an ankle injury. Portugal, by contrast, have a full squad to choose from, with Danilo having recovered from a back injury he picked up in the draw against Iceland.
Good evening sports fans ...
Both sides go into tonight’s match hoping to put decidedly inauspicious opening results behind them. While Cristiano Ronaldo’s toe-curling and contemptuous talk about Iceland having a “small mentality” was total cobblers, group favourites Portugal were the bookies’ favourites to beat Heimer Hallgrimsson and Lars Lagerback’s under-rated side and will be out to rectify the situation against an Austria team whose status as the hipsters’ tournament dark horses took a serious battering when they were convincingly beaten by Hungary in their opener.
