Zoltan Gera scored from a lovely strike from about 26-yards out. The midfielder picked up a poorly cleared ball from a corner on his chest, and then it a half-volley into the bottom corner of the net.
Ronaldo has struggled to deliver his best form in the opening two games of the tournament, and even missed a penalty kick against Austria the last time out.
The Real Madrid forward promised to put those two sluggish performances behind him as he enters the battle with Hungary.
Meanwhile, Portugal head coach Fernando Santos has made two changes from the team that started against Austria last week.
Defender Raphael Guerreiro misses out with a thigh injury and has been replaced by Eliseu, while midfielder Joao Mario comes into the side as a replacement for winger Ricardo Quaresma.
Ronaldo and Nani, who has scored four goals in the last nine outings for his country, will once again lead the attack for the Portuguese side, which sits third in the group behind Iceland and Hungary.
Portugal was held 0-0 by Austria in the last outing.
In the meantime, Hungary has made several changes to its team for this battle, having already qualified for the knockout round.
Mihaly Korhut, Akos Elek, Adam Szalai, Adam Pinter and Gergo Lovrencsics all start for Hungary.
Hungary: Gabor Kiraly, Adam Lang, Mihaly Korhut, Richard Guzmics, Roland Juhasz, Balazs Dzsudzsak, Zoltan Gera, Adam Pinter, Gergo Lovrencsics, Akos Elek, Adam Szalai.
Portugal: Rui Patricio, Vieirinha, Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho, Eliseu, Andre Gomes, William Carvalho, Joao Moutinho, Joao Mario, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo.
