Ghana's national football team captain, Andre Ayew, has expressed his joy and support for teammate Inaki Williams, who secured his first goal for the Black Stars in a crucial 1-0 victory against Madagascar last Friday during the opening match of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
Williams, who previously played for Spain, had been facing a goal drought, enduring 11 consecutive games without finding the back of the net for Ghana.
Despite the frustration he faced from football funs, Williams persevered, and his persistence was rewarded with a late header that secured a victory for Ghana.
After the game, Williams took to Instagram to share his sentiments, stating, "God’s time is perfect. Thank you all for the support."
Andre Ayew, showing his happiness and support for the Spanish-born striker, shared Williams' post on his Instagram story.
Ayew added a caption that read "Patience, calm, and believe," accompanied by a love emoji, clearly indicating his genuine delight for Williams' breakthrough moment.
The victory not only marked an important win for Ghana in their World Cup qualifying campaign but also served as a morale boost for Williams, who had been eagerly seeking to end his goal drought.
With the positive momentum from the first match, Ghana looks ahead to their upcoming qualifier against Comoros in Moroni on Tuesday.
