Former Spain forward Inaki Williams is set to make his Ghana debut after changing his eligibility in July and making their most recent squad.
Inaki Williams of Athletic Bilbao has received his first call from Ghana as the Black Stars work to complete their preparations for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The Spain-born attacker is eligible through his parents, who hail from the nation’s capital, Accra, and his inclusion comes after he made himself available in July for this month’s friendlies with Brazil and Nicaragua.
Williams, a former Spain international, was able to change his allegiance despite having only one appearance in a friendly, against Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2016. Ghana qualified for their fourth World Cup appearance earlier this year after edging Nigeria on away goals in the CAF play-offs.
Other inclusions include Southampton’s Mohammed Salisu, who reportedly refused previous call-ups, and Brighton and Hove Albion’s Tariq Lamptey, a former England youth international.
The Black Stars will feature in Group H at Qatar 2022 and will face Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
The upcoming friends see them play Brazil in Le Havre, France, on September 23, before the Nicaragua game follows in Lorca, Spain, four days later.
