The Foxes defender has become the first Jamaican player to score in Europe's premier club competition after finding the target against Sevilla

Wes Morgan has made more history with Leicester City in what is turning out to be a memorable period for the Foxes skipper.

Having got his hands on the Premier League title last season, the experienced centre-half has embarked on a remarkable European adventure in 2016-17.

The reigning champions may have seen their crown slip domestically this term, but their fairytale run has continued in continental competition.

Having eased their way through the group stage, Leicester’s reward in the last 16 was a meeting with Europa League specialists Sevilla.

A 2-1 defeat on Spanish soil in the first leg kept the Foxes in the contest, with Morgan sending the King Power Stadium wild on Tuesday as he grabbed a record-setting goal in the return date.

One goal would be enough to send Leicester through to the quarter-finals, courtesy of Jamie Vardy’s effort on the road.

The Foxes have, however, gone 12 games in all competitions since they last kept a clean sheet.
