Ghana's No. 1

I'm going to enjoy myself sportingly and personally - Inaki Williams on playing for Ghana

Published on: 14 August 2022

Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams is overjoyed to have chosen to play for Ghana and believes he will have a good time with the Black Stars.

The former Spain U21 international has committed to the Black Stars ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

Williams, who has one cap for Spain, announced his intention to play for his parents' country in June.

Williams said, "There are many factors that have made me make this decision. There was a contact from the federation, it was a great opportunity to represent that country. I had that trip pending to see my family. It was not clear to me and the trip helped me.

“When all the people encourage you to be a 'black star' even though you were born in Europe, you see that you have made the right decision.

"I think I'm going to enjoy myself sportingly and personally, I'm fully mature, it's the best moment and I don't think I'm going to regret it."

Williams is expected to be included in Ghana's World Cup quad later this year. Black Stars will face Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in the group stage.
