US draws with Por­tu­gal in Friendly

The Columbus Dispatch - - Sports Report College Basketball Soccer Tennis Mlb -

We­ston McKen­nie scored in his U.S. de­but, goal­keeper Ethan Hor­vath al­lowed a seem­ingly harm­less cross to drop be­tween his arms and into the net for an equal­izer and the Amer­i­cans tied Por­tu­gal 1-1 Tues­day night at Leiria in their first match since fail­ing to qual­ify for next year’s World Cup.

The U.S. used eight starters 24 or younger in Dave Sarachan’s first match as in­terim coach, the start of a five-year re­build­ing process ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
