ONE NATION, ONE TEAM, ONE WONDO November 11 2014
Earthquakes star Chris Wondolowski and Stanford sophomore Jordan Morris have been called to the U.S. soccer team for the final games of the year, starting Friday in London against No. 3 Colombia.
The Americans also travel to Dublin to play Ireland on Nov. 18. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called on 14 players from the 2014 World Cup roster. Wondolowski, 31, is training this week with Fulham FC of the English Premier League ahead of the U.S. game at Craven Cottage.
Morris has four goals and six assists in 14 games this year for the No. 10 Cardinal, which finishes the Pac-12 season Sunday at Cal. The striker, who also was called up in September, will return in time for the NCAA tournament that begins Nov. 20. Morris, 19, is the only collegian on the 25-player U.S. roster. "It's not something I thought I'd ever do," he said recently about his first call up this fall. "It was so surreal."
