The Seattle Sounders haven't gotten the results they wanted to start the season, but forward Jordan Morris isn't hitting the panic button. In a recent interview, Morris acknowledged the team's struggles but emphasized their motivation to improve.

Morris admits that the goal drought is disappointing, but he emphasizes their problem-solving approach. They are practicing their finishing skills and eager to return to the field and demonstrate their improvement. He acknowledges that scoring is hard – it demands accuracy and timing. The bright side? Morris says they are generating opportunities, only lacking a little more self-belief in front of the net.

The Sounders are not distracted by Philadelphia's recent Concacaf Champions Cup performance. They are determined to play their best game and score some goals. Morris acknowledges that Philadelphia is a strong team, but he expresses confidence that the Sounders can match up with anyone the Union puts on the field.

Morris acknowledges his difficulties in finding the net on a personal level. However, he reassures fans that the team is not panicking. They are confident that the goals will arrive, especially with a reliable defense that provides a solid base for their attack.

Morris is optimistic about the future he and his teammate Raul Ruidiaz have. They play well together, and Morris imagines them as a formidable offensive duo.

Injuries are inevitable in the game, and the Sounders have suffered their share. Morris admits this but shows his trust in the training staff and the team's overall strength. Players have stepped up to the challenge, covering the holes left by injuries smoothly.

The Sounders are a team on a mission to turn things around. With a focus on improvement and unwavering belief in their abilities, they'll be looking to find their scoring touch and climb the table.

On Saturday, March 9th, at 4:30 PM (PT), the Sounders will face the Philadelphia Union. The game will be held at the Subaru Park stadium in Chester, PA. Morris should have another chance as the team's striker despite his past performances.
