USA v Czech Republic - International Friendly Gamethread

Sounders product Jordan Morris doesn't start, but the youth movement is apparent in Jurgen Klinsmann's lineup as the United States takes on the Czech Republic. NBC Sports has the game at 11:15 AM.

A new cycle for the United States starts with a trip to Prague. The friendly against the Czech Republic features six first-time calls, including Mercer Island's own Jordan Morris. Morris will not start as Jozy Altidore takes the armband to lead the team.

If it plays like a 4-3-3 Morris has a better chance of getting time. He can play any of those three forward roles. Klinsmann indicated that Jordan should get about 30 minutes or so. If you have a short lunch you should start just after 12:15 to get your most Morris viewing today.

It should still be a fun match for fans of the Red, White & Blue as the game doesn't matter and plenty of potential players for the Olympics, Copa America Centenario and Russia 2018 will be on the field.
