He may not have made the U.S. Copa America roster, but Jordan Morris is continuing to make his mark on the club level.

The Stanford product struck in the 79th minute, scoring the game’s first goal to lead the Seattle Sounders to a 2-0 win vs. D.C. United last Wednesday. The goal earned Morris’ side all three points heading into the Copa America break, while also netting the forward SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors.

After playing a one-two with Joevin Jones, Morris darted in on goal as his teammate fired a shot at Bill Hamid. The D.C. United goalkeeper parried the shot away, but the Sounders rookie found himself in perfect position for the rebound. Morris’ tapped a cool finish past a recovering Hamid, all but sealing victory for the Sounders.

Morris’ goal earned the forward SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors over fellow goalscorers Jack Harrison and Fabian Herbers.

  1. The crazy thing is he has 5 goals and has been so threatening, and yet I don’t even feel like he is close to what he will be. Combine the many chances that he didn’t finish on with him playing “out of position” on the wing and he can be so much better.

    I won’t say that JK was a fool not to take him. I would probably take him as a forward only and he wasn’t not going to take Dempsey, so it became between him and Wondo. Wondo is playing well.
    I just would have gone with youth, in a case where to me it is obvious he will be in your plans soon.

    • Agree. We gotta start thinking about the next World Cup but yet were hanging on to guys past 35 years old on the US
