Lewis Morgan has the overseas prestige of playing in top competitions such as the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League and it will be interesting to see how that experience will translate to the MLS. 

Signed in January of 2020, he is the only player to register an assist for Inter Miami and has a history of being a facilitator of goals in the Scottish Premier League. 

His 2017-18 season was his most productive of his career so far. Morgan scored 18 goals and tailed 13 assists for St. Mirren FC in all competitions which earned him the move to a bigger club in Celtic FC and his two national team appearances for the Scottish senior side. 

Some of his best goals from that 17/18 season shown here:

His versatility is a major plus as he can play on both sides of the field either as a winger or midfielder and can move in the middle as a central attacking midfielder. 

At 23, it would seem like his best playing years are ahead of him.

Alvas Powell is a right-back that can cause problems down the flank.

He knows what it takes to win the grand prize as he won the MLS Cup with Portland Timbers in 2015. He made 31 regular-season appearances and six playoff appearances en route to the title, starting in each one.  

Internationally he has made 49 appearances for the Jamaican National Team since 2012, scoring 2 goals,  and has started 123 matches in the league scoring six goals in the league.

Another player on Inter Miami’s Roster with MLS Experience is defensive midfielder, Will Trapp. He entered the league as a homegrown player in () for the Columbus Crew and remained with them until this offseason. 

Trapp made his first appearance as Captain at 21 years old and 122 days, which is still the record for youngest Captain in MLS History and made 204 appearances for the side. He was an MLS All-Star in 2016.

Since 2018, Trapp has been an active member of the U.S. Men’s National Team. Trapp is hailed as “tenacious midfielder with vision ” on the US Men’s National Team Website and has made 18 appearances for the national tea

His most memorable goal of his MLS career was against Orlando City. Hopefully, we see another strike like this when the teams meet on July 8th in the MLS is Back Tournament.
