Starting Real Time Tracking Auto Focus A6400

I am currently unable to start AF tracking when using the EVF.  If I use the rear LCD and touch the subject the tracking is started and continues until I press the center wheel button to turn off tracking.  However if I have the camera to my eye, I cannot initiate the tracking feature.  I would like to start tracking by half pressing the shutter button to select the target, then let the camera continue to focus on the selected item as it moves.  What am I doing wrong?  My eyesight and clumsy fingers makes accurate touching of the screen hit and miss.

Thanks
