The Sporting Kansas City No. 10 linked up with the Seattle Sounders forward for the first goal in coach Bruce Arena's second go-round as U.S. coach.

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.
