Jordan Morris continues hot start to 2019 with goal and assist vs. Chicago

The Seattle Sounders are off to their best three-match start since their debut MLS season, and Jordan Morris' return is a big reason why.

Morris set up one goal and then scored a second for Seattle inside the opening 15 minutes of Saturday's match at the Chicago Fire, which they would go on to win, 4-2 to give the Sounders their first 3W-0L-0D start in MLS since 2009.

After missing all of 2018 with a torn ACL, Morris now has three goals and an assist so far after hitting a brace in the Sounders' home opener two weeks ago, with his play earning him a call back into the US national team's upcoming camp.

"When I was rehabbing, that was a big focus of mine to get back healthy and make my way back in the [USMNT] squad," Morris said postgame. "So I'm really excited."

In the eighth minute against Chicago, Morris beat his man on the right flank and then sent a perfectly weighted ball for Victor Rodriguez to finish at the back post.

Seven minutes later, Morris ran onto Nicolas Lodeiro's perfect early diagonal ball and then chipped stranded goalkeeper David Ousted.
