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.

McKennie, a 19-year-old from Texas who has played his way into Schalke's lineup this season, took a pass from C.J. Sapong, used three touches to create space from Ricardo Ferreira and then beat Beto to the inside post with a right-footed shot from 12 yards in the 21st minute.

McKennie became the third-youngest American to score in his debut, behind Juan Agudelo (17) and Landon Donovan (18).

An embarrassing mistake by Horvath led to the tying goal in the 31st minute.

Vitornio Antunes volleyed Bruno Fernandes' pass toward the goal from a flank, and Horvath missed the ball, which bounced between his legs and into the goal. Horvath, a 22-year-old with Club Brugge, covered his face with his gloved hands. He was making his first appearance since his debut against Cuba in October 2016.

Bill Hamid took over in the second half and tipped Goncalo Paciencia's shot off the crossbar in the 68th minute.

McKennie was among three Americans to make their debuts. Tyler Adams, an 18-year-old midfielder with the New York Red Bulls, also started.

Cameron Carter-Vickers, a 19-year-old son of former NBA player Howard Carter, replaced John Brooks at the start of the second half and put a header off the crossbar in the 55th minute. Carter-Vickers was loaned this season from Tottenham to second-tier Sheffield United and has started to get playing time.

Sarachan was the top assistant to Bruce Arena, who quit three days after the 2-1 loss last month in Trinidad that ended the Americans' streak of seven straight Word Cup appearances. Right back DeAndre Yedlin was the only player from the starting lineup in Port-of-Spain to open against the third-ranked Portuguese, who also used a mostly young lineup.

Brooks, who missed last four qualifiers because of a torn thigh muscle, was paired with Matt Miazga in central defense. Brooks headed the ball in the net off a corner kick in the 44th minute, but the goal was called off because of a push away from the ball by Miazga.

Eric Lichaj started at left back. Danny Williams, captaining the U.S. for the first time, was in midfield along with Kellyn Acosta. Agudelo and C.J. Sapong, headed the attack.

Goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez was on the bench but did not make his debut. Josh Sargent, the first American to train with the under-17, under-20 and senior national teams in the same year, did not dress because of a strained right quadriceps.

MLS attendance up, TV ratings lag as US mulls future .
Major League Soccer's attendance is up and fan interest is booming, even if television broadcasts are far less popular and some young Americans would rather play in Europe. MLS averaged 22,000 in attendance for the first time in its history this season, ranked among the top seven leagues in the world. The league is set to add a second Los Angeles franchise next year, announce two expansion cities next month and at some point finalize David Beckham's long-pending Miami club. But viewers averaged under 300,000 for nationally televised regular-season matches, fewer than the average for a New York Yankees game on their regional sports network.
