Stanford’s Jordan Morris scores first goal for USMNT

Stanford sophomore Jordan Morris, the first college player to appear for the United State men’s national team since 1995, scored his first international goal for the senior team on Wednesday night.

In an international friendly against rivals Mexico, Jordan Morris scored the go-ahead goal.

The USMNT took the 1-0 lead in the 48th minute.

Check out the goal below:

Once Morris broke free in the center of the box, there was no hope for El Tri goalkeeper Cirilo Saucedo.

Morris scored his goal by being relentless and pushing through the Mexico defense. The goal marks the first goal for the Stanford standout as a member of the USMNT senior squad. The goal comes in Morris’ second cap. The first time Morris saw the field for the United States was in a 4-1 defeat to Ireland.

This time around, he made a much bigger impact.

If he continues to play at a high level and helps the United States to victory — especially against a hated rival — Morris could find himself becoming a regular on Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad.
