Jordan Morris Returns To U.S. MNT

A year after his season-ending ACL injury, Homegrown striker Jordan Morris is having an explosive return to Seattle Sounders FC.

The 24-year-old with three goals and an assist in his first three MLS games has earned his way back onto the U.S. Men’s National Team, and he is building a strong case for MLS Comeback Player of the Year.

He returns to the U.S. MNT for the first time since January Camp 2018, but he’s no stranger to starring roles for both club and country. Morris has positioned Seattle atop the current MLS standings, and he was a key contributor toward its 2016 MLS Cup-winning campaign. With 25 caps and five goals for country, he put away this 89th-minute game-winner in the 2017 Concacaf Gold Cup final, and just might have the chance to revive those heroics during the tournament this year.

Morris and the U.S. MNT host Ecuador at Orlando City Stadium on Thursday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2, UniMás, UDN) before taking on Chile at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on March 26 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2, UniMás, UDN).
