England have been criticised for sending a weakened squad to Dublin for the RSA Challenge one-day international against Ireland.
Fast bowler Steven Finn is the only member of the England party to have travelled for the 10,000 sell-out contest at Malahide that featured in the recent Ashes series against Australia.
The presence of Morgan and possible debutant Boyd Rankin - both former Ireland internationals - in the squad is also a strong reminder of the lure England, with their Test status, have over the best Irish players.
But Morgan, also a former player at host club Malahide, believes it is unfair to say English cricket does not support the Irish game.
He said: "Having played against England in an Ireland shirt I didn't feel that way at all, and having come back here and played Ireland a couple of years ago, I didn't get that feeling.
"I have been involved in the England set-up since I was very young.
"Even when I was still playing for Ireland I was playing for the south of England Under-17s, Under-19s, the Middlesex Academy and, from there, the Lions. They have always been helpful to me. I know Boyd feels the same way."
The match has been labelled as the biggest in Irish cricket history, certainly on home soil, and the public seem to have welcomed it.
Morgan insists the England squad's selection has not cheated the fans and he expects a good contest.
Ireland famously beat England at the 2011 World Cup in Bangalore and the 26-year-old says there will be no complacency.
Morgan, who is leading the side in the absence of rested regular skipper Alastair Cook, said: "I think we have brought a strong side, a young and very talented side. Given opportunities, hopefully they will show they are world-beaters.
"It is very exciting for us to come across here and give these guys opportunities to go and flourish in a game like this. We will certainly not take Ireland for granted."
Ireland captain William Porterfield, who plays his domestic cricket in England with Warwickshire, feels too much has been made of the visitors' apparent lack of strength.
Porterfield said: "To be honest I don't really see where it comes from. They have picked a squad to play to play ourselves and Australia, and that is it as far as I am concerned.
"They are putting out as strong a team as they want to put out. They are looking forward to (World Cup) 2015, that is the next big stage for everyone.
"If you look through their side, there are some pretty exciting young players in there. If you look at the performances of all those lads, especially in country cricket, they have all got a future in the game.
"I'm guessing they'll be pretty nervous as well. For a lot of them it's their first outing in international cricket.
"As exciting and promising as they are, there will be a few nerves floating around there as well."
