Born and brought up in England, Morgan chose to represent his ancestral Jamaica at international level, making his debut for them in 2013. He was part of their teams that competed in two Copa América tournaments and finished runners-up at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The only problem is… Wes Morgan has 25 caps for Jamaica.
On 1 September 2013, Morgan was called up to the Jamaican squad for the first time. He made his debut in a 0–0 draw against Panama at the Estadio Rommel Fernández in Panama City on 7 September 2013. Morgan captained the Reggae Boyz for the first time in the 3–1 defeat to Canada on 9 September 2014.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri described Morgan as a "leader and a warrior", adding: "It's a wonderful time to be part of this team. Now we have another huge season ahead of us and we need him."

Not one or two, earned years ago. Twenty five caps - the last two of which he won in the last international break.
How else do we explain this rather embarrassing slip-up?
Leicester won the 2013–14 Football League Championship, in which he missed only one game. Afterwards, the club used a clause in his would-be expired contract to keep him for another season; he eventually signed a new three-year deal.
Wes Morgan was born in England, however he represents Jamaica on the international scene.

One suspects Roy Hodgson would probably love to give Morgan an opportunity to prove himself at the top level ahead of Euro 2016, but unfortunately the Leicester captain has already played 25 times for the Reggae Boyz.
For what it’s worth Harry, Wes would be in our dream England squad if it wasn’t for his 25 Jamaica caps.
Redknapp used his column in The Telegraph to make his claims, although the piece has now been updated online.
Oh dear. Not the finest moment in the punditry career of Old 'Arry. Given his stint as Jordan boss, you'd think he might now understand how international football works…
There are a lot of players at Leicester who have followed the same route and you would not expect them to be top of the league but they deserve it. Wes has been through the mill, he has been in League One and the Championship, fought against relegation from the Premier League. I still bump into him now and again at the gym, he always says hello. I cannot remember if he still calls me ‘gaffer’. I am very pleased for him and his family, who have been supportive throughout his career.
On 30 January 2012, Morgan joined East Midland rivals Leicester City for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1 million. As a result of his performances towards the end of the 2011–12 season, he was awarded with the Leicester City captaincy ahead of the 2012–13 season. His impressive performances early on earned him a nomination for Championship Player of the Month for September.
Because he was still studying at college we couldn’t offer him a proper contract so Forest took him as an apprentice. There was no transfer fee but we managed to get a couple of Forest kits off Charlie McParland, who was coaching there at the time. That was more than enough.
When it comes to the top flight of English football, Harry Redknapp knows his onions.
He is a co-owner of Blue Ink, a tattoo studio in Leicester.

But it’s also easy to understand why many football fans have made the following mistake.
The Nottingham born defender has been a member of the Reggae Boyz squad since 2013.
Nevertheless, after the England 26-man squad was named on Monday (it needs to be cut down to 23 players by May 31), many people took to social media to criticise Hogdson for omitting Morgan.
Eight years ago Wes Morgan was playing in League One, battling to get promotion for Nottingham Forest.
Striker Jamie Vardy also signed a new deal after a bid from Arsenal in the summer but midfielder N'Golo Kante joined Chelsea for about £30m and there is speculation forward Riyad Mahrez could also leave.
That’s confused the likes of Harry Redknapp in the past, as the former West Ham and Spurs boss penned a post for the Telegraph in recent times calling for Morgan to be in the Three Lions setup.
He spent the majority of his career with his boyhood club, Nottingham Forest, playing 402 official games and scoring 14 goals. He was their longest-serving player when he transferred to Leicester City in January 2012. Morgan became Leicester's captain later that year, and has gone on to play nearly 200 matches in all competitions for them, captaining them to the Championship title in 2014 and the Premier League title two years later.

I can still remember the night I was told we had agreed a fee with Leicester for Wes and it was a very low moment. He had only just come back from injury and then ended up being sold at a time when Forest desperately needed the money. There were about four bids. Leicester started off at £500,000 and then eventually got him on deadline day for around £ 1million. They kept on pushing for Wes and it soon became very clear that we would not be able to hold on to him.

Westley Nathan "Wes" Morgan (born 21 January 1984) is a Jamaican professional footballer who plays as a defender for and is captain of English club Leicester City and the Jamaica national team.
As a captain, first and foremost you need to be respected by the dressing room and Wes Morgan is that person. Everyone respects him and you cannot fault him as a captain. You can see his authority and what every other player thinks of him. He is such a nice bloke and he has been fantastic from a defensive point of view.

There’s a slight problem though ‘Arry. Big Wes has already picked up 25 caps for Jamaica.
Wes had just been released by Notts County and was studying business at South Notts College when he broke into our team at the age of 16. Believe it or not, he was playing in central midfield at the time and knocking people about even then. It was a good standard at semi-pro and he only played half a season for us before he was spotted by Forest. They had been watching him, along with a load of non-League clubs, and we could not stand in his way.
Yes, Wes Morgan has been magnificent for Leicester City this season.
However, when it comes to prospective/probable Premier League champions Leicester City, old' Arry's expertise is clearly a little limited.
