Hungary had just reclaimed its lead over Portugal when Cristiano Ronaldo showcased a moment of brilliance.

The under-fire Real Madrid star took a cross from the right and redirected it with a mini-look cheeky backheel to make it 2-2 in the 49th minute.

What a finish (and we’re in for quite a finish, as Hungary retook the leads minutes later only to see Ronaldo equalize at 3).

It’s Ronaldo’s first goal of the tournament, and makes him the first player to score in four different EURO tournaments. Nani has the other two goals for Portugal in EURO 2016.
