Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has many reasons to be happy this summer. The Foxes turned around their Premier League form to survive relegation and secure their top flight status for at least a second year, he then featured for Jamaica at the Copa America, and now the defender has a pretty impressive collection of shirts to take back to Leicester.

The 31-year-old Nottingham-born centre-back first played for Jamaica in 2013, and has gone on to make 15 appearances for the Reggae Boyz after qualifying through his Jamaican-born grandparents.

He played in all three of their Copa America group games against Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina – which all ended in 1-0 defeats – and he revealed on Twitter that he is heading for a few weeks rest before turning his attention to the Concacaf Gold Cup next month.

However, the three games in Chile has given him the opportunity to collect an impressive haul of opponents’ shirts, and he can look back on the South American tournament fondly when he takes a glance at the shirts of Lionel Messi, Edinson Cavani and Roque Santa Cruz.

Along with the picture of the three shirts, Morgan said: “Great experience playing in the copa America, couple weeks off then on to the gold cup #jamaica.”
