Head coach of Great Olympics, Yaw Preko has likened Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams to Ghana legendary striker Asamoah Gyan.

Gyan, 37, is the all-time top scorer of the Ghana national team having netted 51 goals in 109 appearances since making his debut in 2003.

Williams was invited to the Ghana squad for the very first time for the two friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua after switching international allegiance from Spain.

However, Preko believes if Ghana can make good use of the new Black Stars' play, he can be as important as Gyan was during his prime.

"We should make good use of Williams and benefit more from him, he's like Asamoah Gyan," Preko, who is a former Ghana international told Angel TV.

He came on at halftime to make his first bow for Ghana in their 3-0 defeat to Brazil last week at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France.

He made his full debut for Ghana last Tuesday when the Black Stars recorded a 1-0 victory against Nicaragua in Lorca, Spain.

The 28-year-old scored and assisted in Bilbao's 4-0 thrashing of Almeria on Friday evening in the Spanish Primera Division.

His younger brother Nico Williams who also made his Spain during the international break scored and grabbed an assist in the encounter.
