The french-based goalkeeper has announced his retirement from international after eight years of service.

The former Quevilly keeper won 23 caps in eight years representing his country on the international stage. 

His first national call-up was for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualification match against Tunisia.

“I will never forget the SLFA officials, the loyal fans of Leone Stars, who without a doubt, supported me under difficult circumstances.”

“There are very few national teams in the World that have fans as passionate and devoted as you are,” Morris noted in a letter to the SLFA.

He told FSL News, “I am grateful to the Sierra Leoneans fans during all difficult times. I’m sorry if this might not be the right time for some of my fans. I think this is the right time for me to make way for the younger players.”

Morris last match was the close door 1-1 draw in the 2022 African Cup of Nations tie against Lesotho in Freetown November 2019.
