Morris, the all-time leading scorer in the competition's history with 5 goals, headed home a cross after getting inside his defender before heading to the far post with little time remaining.


In League A's Group D, the United States now have four points after two games.

The goal came at a moment in the match where the U.S. were just sharper, building on a solid second half and getting a boost when El Salvador saw red with just over 10 minutes to go to make it 10-v-10.

 After a failed cross, Luca de la Torre positioned himself well to whip in a ball straight into the center of the box, which Morris did not waste it.

The victory avoids what would have been an embarrassing defeat as the U.S. have lost to El Salvador just once, back in 1992.


Alexander Larin's goal in the 35th minute gave the hosts a narrow lead. The Comunicaciones left back went for goal from a narrow angle, and nobody saw it coming, including goalkeeper Ethan Horvath, who was left stunned and frozen.

The USA's undefeated record versus El Salvador now stands at 20 games.
