Published on: 17 November 2023

In a thrilling display of skill and determination, Inaki Williams left an indelible mark on the 2026 World Cup qualifiers as he netted his first goal for Ghana in a riveting clash against Madagascar at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The resounding cheers of the passionate crowd echoed through the air as Williams showcased his prowess on the pitch, propelling the team to a momentous victory in a match that will be etched in the annals of Ghana football history.

Inaki Williams made his debut for Ghana against Brazil, playing the second half of the 3–0 loss in Le Havre, France in September 2022.

The Black Stars failed to impress in the first half as Madagascar caused all sorts of trouble.

After recess, Coach Chris Hughton made two changes for Ghana in his bid to turn the game in favour of the hosts.

While the changes worked, Ghana still struggled to breach the defense of Madagascar until youngster Ernest Nuamah came on late in the game.

His depth touches and skills on the ball gave Ghana the advantage as Mohammed Kudus also used his shot from range to stress the visitors.

Late into injury time, Inaki Williams scored with a thumping header after meeting a cross from Ernest Nuamah to win the game for the Black Stars of Ghana.
