Wes Morgan Championship Goal Jamaican

Making history, Wes Morgan. 33-year-old defender with Leicester City, is the first Jamaican player to score a goal in the Champions League. Morgan made his goal in the 27th minute to inspire the team to its victory against Sevilla in the prestigious competitive match. Leicester lost 2 to 1 in Spain previously and so was happy to get through to the quarter finals before attaining the win.

He is unconcerned about the team’s next opponent, saying they will take whoever comes next in the quarter final before expressing his delight with the latest match. “It’s an incredible evening for the club and the for our fans.”
