Wes Morgan to Miss Jamaica’s First Copa América Game After ‘Partying’

Wes Morgan to Miss Jamaica’s First Copa América Game After ‘Partying’

Wes Morgan has been ruled out of Jamaica’s opening Copa América game against Venezuela, with Winfried Schäfer saying the defender was “tired” after celebrating Leicester City’s astonishing title victory and joining the team’s official visit to Thailand.

Schäfer told the Jamaican newspaper The Sunday Gleaner that while the Leicester captain had joined up with the squad in the United States, he would not be ready for their first Group C game on Sunday.

“Morgan has come, but he is tired; that is clear. All week, he has not trained,” the Jamaica coach said. “He partied in London and Thailand but I am very happy he is here and maybe he can help in the second match, but not the first match because it is too difficult.”

Morgan, who played every minute of the season as Leicester won the first league titlein the club’s history, has 25 international caps for Jamaica. The 250-1 outsiders are likely to need his defensive talent in their final two games, against Mexico and Uruguay, if they are to reach the knockout stages.

Both offenses struggled throughout the day, which put a heavy emphasis on special teams.
