Wednesday was Jordan Morris’ chance to show himself for the U.S. Men’s National Team. He did just that while saving the USMNT from a humiliating result.
The Seattle Sounders forward fired a brace on Wednesday night, leading the way in a 3-2 win over Martinique in Tampa. Morris’ two goals doubled his USMNT tally while earning honors as SBI USMNT Man of the Match for Wednesday’s victory.
Morris missed out on a pair of early chances, but he proved clinical throughout the second half. His first goal came from his oft-criticized left foot as the forward tapped home an Eric Lichaj cross to give the USMNT a 2-0 lead. It evaporated rapidly as Martinique fought back to 2-2 before Morris fired the eventual game-winner. Just moments after the equalizing goal, Morris finished off a Gyasi Zardes cross to seal the win.
With his goals, Morris stood out in a big way while earning Man of the Match honors over the likes of Eric Lichaj, Kellyn Acosta and Omar Gonzalez.
