The U.S. national team is up and running in Bruce Arena's second stint as coach, and the goal came thanks to a player frozen out under the previous boss.
Sporting Kansas City midfielder Benny Feilhaber was the catalyst for the goal in a 1-0 friendly victory against Jamaica.
Feilhaber, who made his return to the national team camp this winter after more than two years away, took a pass from Dax McCarty in the 59th minute. He moved it on to Morris, who played a return for the playmaker. Feilhaber then scooted the ball wide for Morris, who was able to beat Ryan Thompson to the goalkeeper's near post.
The U.S. played to a scoreless draw against Serbia on Sunday and now turns its attention to World Cup qualification matches against Honduras and Panama in March.
