Steven Gerrard makes Alfredo Morelos announcement

Steven Gerrard yesterday confirmed star striker Alfredo Morelos has been called up again for the Colombian squad.

The Colombian has been in even better form this season than last, and has delivered on all stages for his club this term, and Gerrard praised a great deal of his contribution, but crucially pointed out it’s earned Morelos a preliminary call up for Carlos Queiroz’ men next month for an international meeting midway through October, albeit no fixtures are actually confirmed for it yet.

The striker has really stepped up this season, and massively improved his discipline, but it’s that call up for the 23-year old, infamously rejected for Colombia’s Copa America group in the summer, that suggests the Portuguese manager of the Coffee Men is starting to believe in the Rangers forward again.

The ex-Man Utd assistant and Real Madrid manager still has his final 24 to whittle the initial 37-strong group down to, and Atalanta’s Luis Muriel has mostly been ahead of Morelos lately, but with the ex-HJK man very much in the mix to be part of this international camp, it points in the direction of Rangers’ talisman moving in the right direction to take his international career from flirting with selection to becoming an increasing mainstay.

Good job!
