A capacity crowd of 45,000 is expected for the USA's match in St. Louis, the first of the campaign to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The MNT was drawn into Group C for the Semifinal Round of Qualifying along with St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago and Guatemala. Following the match in St. Louis, the USA will travel to Port of Spain for the away leg with Trinidad, which will be played Nov. 17 and broadcast on beIN Sports and NBC Universo at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Morris has already made an impact with the MNT this year, scoring against Mexico in April and assisting on the game-winning goal against the Netherlands. He has split time between the senior team, making five appearances with the MNT in 2015 and earning 11 caps with the U-23s, scoring six goals and tallying four assists.

A MAC Hermann Trophy candidate, Morris has been nearly unstoppable when wearing a Stanford shirt this season and has a career-high eight goals in 13 appearances. In his last nine games with the Cardinal, the junior has seven goals, two assists and 16 points. Earlier this season, Morris slotted one past the keeper in five straight collegiate matches, becoming just the second Stanford player to do that since 1987. (Darren Fernandez; September 21, 2002 – October 3, 2002).

Morris, a Type 1 diabetic, is also lending his support to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) “T1D Looks Like Me Campaign” for National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) in November. Among a number of different pieces to the awareness push, Morris is currently featured in a display ad in Times Square.
