World Cup 2022: Inaki Williams mother advises son not to be selfish ahead of crunch Portugal duel

Published on: 24 November 2022

The mother of Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams has advised her son to be selfish as Ghana prepare to face Portugal at the ongoing Qatar 2022 World cup on Thursday, November 24, 2022.

Ekua Antwiwaa who is based in Spain has arrived in Doha to support her first son who is expected to lead Ghana’s attack against Portugal in their first game in Group H at the Stadium 974.

“I am supporting him to score goals; but I have also told him to pass the ball to another player if he can’t score. He shouldn’t be selfish” she said.

“I have asked Inaki to get me Ronaldo’s jersey after the match because I like him (Ronaldo). But on Thursday I want Ghana to beat Portugal” she added.

Ekua Antwiwaa visited Inaki Williams on Tuesday at the Double Tree hotel where the Black Stars are lodging.

The enterprising forward switched nationality to play for the West African powerhouse in June and has since made three appearances. Williams is yet to score for the four-time African champions.

The Black Stars having missed out in the last edition hosted in Russia in 2018 will be hoping to improve their performance in Qatar after exiting the group phase during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Only three sides from the continent have ever progressed to the quarter-finals; Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002, and Ghana in 2010.

Ghana will be hoping to progress from the group stage at this year's tournament.
