Stanford soccer: Jordan Morris called up to USMNT for Brazil match

  USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann called up Stanford forward Jordan Morris for the Brazil friendly on Sept. 8.

STANFORD, Calif. – U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has added Stanford forward Jordan Morris to the roster for the United States’ upcoming match with Brazil it was announced Sunday morning.

The U.S. meets five-time World Cup champion Brazil at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Tuesday, Sept. 8 [5 p.m. PT; ESPN Networks, UniMas, Univision Deportes Network] in its final preparation game before the decisive Oct. 10 playoff against Mexico for a spot in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. The United States beat Peru, 2-1, on Friday night in Washington, D.C. behind a pair of goals from Jozy Altidore.

The science, technology and society major, who has capped five times for the U.S. Men’s National Team, has become the face of college soccer in the past year. In November 2014 he became the first active collegian since 1995 to appear for the USMNT when he came on in the 76th minute in a friendly against Ireland in Dublin. On April 15, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas, the junior started and scored for the United States against Mexico, becoming the first college player to score for the USA since Sept. 1992.

Morris scored the winner in the 81st minute of Stanford’s 1-0 victory at Louisville last Monday evening, his 11th career goal. A 2014 NSCAA/Continental Tire First Team All-American and MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist, he is again on the watch list for this season’s Hermann Trophy along with teammate and fellow All-American Brandon Vincent.

The Cardinal went 3-0-1 in the four matches Morris missed in 2014 due to responsibilities with U.S. Soccer.

Another veteran of the U.S. Soccer system, freshman Amir Bashti is currently with the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team roster at the Stevan Vilotic-Cele Tournament in Serbia.

No. 16 Stanford [2-1-0] hosts VCU [0-3-0] on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. in its first Pac-12 Networks game of the year.
