Inaki Williams, a striker for Ghana, has received appreciation from coach Otto Addo, who said the forward’s Spanish birth adds positivity to the Black Stars.
Williams made his intention to play for Ghana official once Ghana was admitted to the World Cup.
In the September friendly match conducted in France, the Athletic Bilbao attacker made his debut against Brazil after completing his transfer in June 2022.
Otto Addo has lauded the forward for his enthusiasm in the team ahead of Ghana’s 2022 World Cup opener against Portugal.
“Yes. He has experience. He is a warrior on the field, a leader and he brings a lot of positive things to this team,” he told Spanish portal AS.
Addo also made a point of praising Inaki.
“I am fascinated by his humility, his hunger to win, and his willingness to always go the extra mile.”
At the 974 Stadium in Doha, Williams is anticipated to play against the Portuguese on Thursday.
The Black Stars are back in action four days later when they play South Korea at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium.
At Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Ghana will conclude their exciting group stage journey with their much awaited matchup with Uruguay.
