Ghanaian striker Inaki Williams expressed his delight after scoring his first "special" goal for the Black Stars in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Madagascar at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday.

Despite his prolific form with Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, Williams had faced challenges on the international front since switching allegiance to represent Ghana last year.

The momentous occasion finally arrived for Williams as he headed home a last-gasp winner, securing all three points for Ghana in a crucial match in Kumasi.

The presence of his family added extra essence to the achievement, making the goal a memorable moment in Williams' international career.

"I'm very happy to score my first goal. It's special. Kumasi people are lovely, and I thank them very well. This goal is very dear to me because my family was in the stadium," shared the elated Athletic Bilbao striker.

Ghana's victory against Madagascar propelled them to third place on the table, with Comoros and Mali ahead in terms of goal difference.

As the Black Stars gear up to face Comoros in Moroni on Tuesday, Williams is expected to play a crucial role, with hopes high for more heroics from the talented forward.
