Lewis Morgan was Inter Miami’s MVP last season – now the former Celtic and St Mirren star is targeting a spot at Euro 2020.
The winger enjoyed a memorable first season in the MLS with Inter Miami – who are owned by English football icon David Beckham. He won their Most Valuable Player award after the St Mirren academy product’s move from Celtic last year.
Steve Clarke will submit his squad for Euro 2020 on June 1st and Morgan wants part of it (Scotsman): “Playing for your national team is the biggest honour a player can have and it’s definitely a goal I have to force myself back into that set-up. I know I’m more than capable of doing it.
“Last year was difficult, I was going to be involved in one of the camps but with travel and Covid restrictions it wasn’t viable, logistically. Johnny Russell at Sporting Kansas was in a similar position. Since then it’s been the same script. It’s not been ideal for players out here and with us being out of season.
“It meant, for the last [World Cup] qualifiers, I wasn’t really going to be involved because there hasn’t been much game time for us. Going forward from now I’m going to be in the season so I need to perform every single week for Miami. The manager is very hands on, him and his staff are very detailed, they are very clear and have an identity of how they want to play. It leaves us in no doubt what is expected of us.”
