Club Career

Morales joined Hertha's youth system back in 2000 at the tender age of 10. Working through the ranks, the German-American became a mainstay in Hertha's reserve team during the 2009-10 season, where was used as a central midfielder and as a central defender.

Morales was invited to train with the senior team prior to the 2010-11 season, but following pre-season, he was again assigned to the reserves. However, that fall he made the bench for a DFB Pokal match and soon after was handed his first team debut in December 2010.

International Career

Morales earned several calls to the US U-20 national team in advance of the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup, although he did not make the final squad.

Morales was also part of Caleb Porter's U-23 team, but Hertha did not allow him to take part in qualifying.

Morales earned his first US cap in January 2013 against Canada.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
