Jordan Morris will play for the United States against the Netherlands and Germany after the forward was added to the team's roster for their upcoming European friendlies. U.S. Soccer did not announce his addition to the team, but a tweet showed the equipment manager printing the names on the squad's jerseys and Morris' name is on the list of names to be printed.

Morris just finished playing for the U.S. U-23 team at the Toulon Tournament so he was already in Europe. The U-23's struggled in Toulon, going 2-2 despite playing generally U-20 teams and failing to make it out of their group. But while the team had problems, Morris was a bright spot. He was at the heart of most American attacks and was clearly on another level than his teammates.

The last time Morris played for the senior team was in April when he scored against Mexico. While he was once known as the first collegiate player in nearly two decades to play for the senior team, he's now a hot shot prospect who people are expecting a lot from in the future. We'll see how he adjusts back with the big team, on European soil and against two of the world's better sides.
