Morris rejoins USA men's soccer senior national team

 

U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has added Stanford forward Jordan Morris to the roster it was announced Sunday morning.

Morris joins the senior team after scoring the opening goal in the U-23 MNT's 5-2 win against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday in Tuzla.

U.S. forward Aron Johannsson has been sidelined while undergoing treatment for an infection and will not be ready in time for the match against Switzerland.

The United States will face Switzerland – one of the eight seeded teams in the 2014 FIFA World Cup – on March 31 in Zurich at 9 a.m. PT (Fox Sports 1, UniMas, UDN).

It's the Stanford forward's third call up to the U.S. Men's National Team. In November, he became the first active collegian since 1995 to receive a cap for the USMNT when he came on in the 76th minute in a friendly against Ireland in Dublin.

An earlier call up to the national team camp for its Sept. 3 friendly against the Czech Republic in Prague made him the first current collegian to join the USMNT in 15 years.
