Stanford's Morris joins U.S. National Team for soccer friendlies

 

U.S. Men's Senior National Team soccer forward Jordan Morris from Stanford has been added to the roster for the USA's friendlies against Netherlands and Germany. He joined the squad Wednesday morning in Amsterdam from Toulon, France, where he participated in the 2015 Toulon Tournament with the U.S. U-23 MNT.

Morris appeared in all four matches in Toulon, starting three. He scored a goal and earned ussoccer.com Man of the Match honors against host France.

The striker has made three appearances for the senior team, his first career goal proving the game-winner in the 2-0 win against Mexico on April 15 in San Antonio.

The U.S. meets No. 6-ranked Netherlands on Friday in Amsterdam (11:30 a.m. PT - ESPN, WatchESPN, UniMas, UDN). The United States is seeking its first result in the series, having suffered four losses while scoring only a single goal.

Five days later, the USA faces 2014 FIFA World Cup champion Germany on June 10 in Cologne (Fox Sports 1, UniMas, UDN). The teams played in their final group game in Brazil last summer, with the Germans earning a 1-0 win. It's been nine years since the last meeting on German soil, when the hosts then led by former coach Jurgen Klinsmann, cruised to a 4-1 win in Dortmund.
