Besiktas’ Europa League campaign was on life support, and a USMNT winger picked up the paddles.
Tyler Boyd has his first goal with his new club, drawing level with Braga in Portugal with a tight move and smooth finish.

Boyd, 24, had been an unused sub in four of Besiktas’ last five matches, and his lone start was the side’s 2-1 loss to Braga at home in Turkey.
Handed another chance away from home, Boyd is on the board. Besiktas has since given the lead back to Braga ahead of a huge second half.
Boyd was recalled to the USMNT by Gregg Berhalter earlier Thursday.
