Seattle Sounders academy product Jordan Morris scores first goal for US national team vs. Mexico

Seattle Sounders academy product Jordan Morris is a 20-year-old sophomore at Stanford University ... who already has a senior US national team goal. Against eternal rivals Mexico, no less.

Morris scored the first goal in Wednesday night's latest 2-0 triumph against El Tri, slotting home a ball four minutes after the break in San Antonio's Alamodome (watch the goal here).

"It's hard to describe," Morris told FOX Sports 1 after the match. "It's a really emotional game any time we play Mexico. They're a big rival of ours. Scoring a goal against them is something I've dreamed about since I was a little kid. So to make it happen is unbelievable."

With Toronto FC forward Jozy Altidore suspended for the match, Morris got the start alongside LA Galaxy striker Gyasi Zardes and made the most of his third appearance with the senior squad.

"It was an unbelievable team effort," Morris told FOX Sports 1. "From the back line to the forwards, everyone was working hard the whole 90 minutes. Our mentality is we're going to outwork the other team. So we go out there and stick to that and we did that really well today. Everyone contributed and it worked out."
