Athletic Bilbao forward, Inaki Williams, has sparked rumours he could naturalize to play for Ghana’s Black Stars after liking a tweet showing Ghana’s group opponents at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The 27 year old who was born to Ghanaian parents has in the past played down suggestions he could feature for the Black Stars.
However, moments after Ghana was drawn against Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea at the 2022 FIFA World Cup draw in Qatar, Williams liked a tweet from the official Twitter handle of the Black Stars, relaying the information about Ghana’s group opponents.
His last appearance for Spain came in a friendly game against Bosnia and Herzegovina back in 2016, which makes him eligible to play for the Black Stars at the 2022 World Cup.
Williams in an interview last year cast doubts on switching nationalities for Ghana saying, “My parents are from Accra and I really enjoy going. But I wasn’t born or raised there, my culture’s here, and there are players for whom it would mean more.
I don’t think it would be right to take the place of someone who really deserves to go and who feels Ghana 100%.”
