In 2021, few players had a better case for making the U.S. Men’s World Cup roster than Jordan Morris: He was named to the MLS Best XI and then earned a loan at the English Second Division Swansea City. But in his fifth appearance for the Swans, Morris suffered a torn ACL in his left knee that sidelined him for the rest of the season.
Morris’ comeback campaign in 2022 wasn’t impressive, either for him or the Sounders, but his veteran presence and ability to play on the wing and in midfield earned him a spot in the squad of 26 players by Gregg Berhalter. If he gets the chance to play and takes advantage of it, he will be one of the most inspiring stories of the tournament.
