Four years ago, the Caleb Porter’s United States crashed out of Olympic qualifying, a spectacular failure that included an embarrassing 2-0 loss to Canada in Nashville, one that had American fans shaking their fists in frustration.

This time around, Jordan Morris and the Yanks wasted little time in making a statement of difference, putting their Northern neighbors on the losing end of a 3-1 decision with a first minute goal.

Morris finished the day with a pair of goals, the first coming when he leapt onto a Jerome Kiesewetter (Stuttgart) cross, heading it home.

Then, the Stanford junior got on the end of a picture-perfect looping ball from Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew), who shrugged off the charge of Luca Gasparotto before nutmegging Montreal Impact goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau.
