The Chicago mayor's office says an estimated 20,000 people packed a lakefront park to watch the U.S. tie Portugal in World Cup action.

U.S. Soccer and the Chicago Park District hosted the Sunday afternoon event downtown. The 20,000 figure is twice the number of people who came to Grant Park last week to watch the U.S. defeat Ghana.
