Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams has confirmed he will play the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Ghana.

Although Williams was born in Spain, his parents are originally from Ghana, and despite playing in a friendly game for Spain in May 2016, he is able to switch his loyalties.

“Every step that we make in life has significance and we evolve and look to the future. My parents have always tried to teach me values based on humility, respect and love and they have shown me the way I have to face life to continue to grow as a person,” said Williams in a statement.

“That is why I feel that the moment has arrived to discover my roots, with myself and with all of Africa and Ghana and what that means for me. I want to return a small part of what they have given us.”

“From now, I will defend the colors of Ghana, giving everything at every moment. I am one more of the ‘Black Stars’,” added the 28-year-old striker.

Williams was Athletic’s top scorer last season with eight goals in La Liga. His younger brother Nico, who also plays for the Basque club and Spain’s U-21 side, has so far decided to continue playing for Spain. Enditem
