Inaki Williams announces he is now eligible to play for Black Stars of Ghana. FIFA has approved his nationality switch.
The former Spanish international announced his decision via a video he posted. “From now on, I will defend Ghana’s T-shirt. With all my will whilst I give my best. I’m one of the Black Stars”
Inaki Williams prior to his switch to the Black Stars of Ghana played for the Spanish U18 team in 2016 scoring three goals in the process. He also made one appearance for the Spanish senior team in a friendly against Bosnia in 2016.
Speaking about the switch, Inaki William stated that he wants to give all he can to demonstrate what Ghana and Africa mean to him.
“That’s why I feel the moment has come for me to find my origins within myself and with Africa and Ghana which means so much to me and my family. I want to return a small part of everything it has given to us because Ghana has played a significant part of becoming who I am as a person, as a son, and as a brother,” Williams said.
The switch comes as a boost for Ghana ahead of this year’s World Cup in Qatar, where they have been grouped alongside Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea. The tournament kicks off on Nov. 21.
