College kid Morris on target as USA down Mexico in San Antonio

The USA national team defeated Mexico 2-0 in an international friendly on Wednesday night.

More than 64,000 fans turned out at the Alamodome in San Antonio to watch the 65th all-time meeting between the two nations which Juergen Klinsmann's side saluted thanks to second half-goals from Jordan Morris and Juan Agudelo.

Stanford University sophomore Morris, in his first US start, opened the scoring when he pounced on a loose ball at the top of the area before slotting beyond Cirilo Saucedo in the 49th minute for his first international goal.

In the 72nd minute, the US doubled their advantage when New England Revolution striker Agudelo beautifully controlled a long ball from captain Michael Bradley before cutting inside and firing low from the edge of the 18-yard box.

The win was USA's third in their past five encounters with El Tri, extending their unbeaten streak against their rivals to six matches, having last lost to their neighbours in June 2011.

Next up for Klinsmann's men is a friendly with Holland on June 5 at the Amsterdam Arena while Mexico will host Senegal at the end of May.
