In a highly anticipated match at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Iñaki Williams, the Athletic Bilbao striker who recently changed his international allegiance from Spain to Ghana, is yet to make his home debut for the Black Stars in today’s encounter against Angola.
Williams, who had previously played all three group games at the World Cup for Ghana without scoring, has been named in the starting line-up by coach Chris Hughton and has been joined by a formidable attacking force comprising Kudus Mohammed, Jordan Ayew, and Kamal Deen Sulemana.
Despite being in a goal drought this year and failing to score for Bilbao in a competitive match, Williams shows flashes of brilliance and is often close to breaking the deadlock on a few occasions for his club.
The Ghanaian midfield is anchored by Arsenal star Thomas Partey and Edmund Addo, while Lawrence Ati Zigi has been given another opportunity to perform well or even better than the world cup performance in Qatar.
The Ghanaian defense, consisting of Denis Odoi, Gideon Mensah, Daniel Amartey, and Alexander Dziku, is expected to be resolute throughout the match and snuff out any attacking threat from the Angolan team.
The Baba Yara Stadium is packed to capacity with passionate Ghanaian supporters, who are cheering the team on to victory in what is a crucial match in their quest to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.
With Williams now fully integrated into the Ghanaian team and showing glimpses of his immense talent, there is great optimism among Ghanaian football fans that he will play a crucial role in their pursuit of continental glory.
