Former Ghana star Laryea Kingston has heaped praises on Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams after making his debut for the Black Stars.
The former Accra Hearts of Oak SC midfield-gem says he was very impressive with the Spain-based striker in the game against Brazil and Nicaragua respectively.
The Athletic Bilbao forward played in Ghana’s defeat to powerhouse Brazil and the slim win over minnows Nicaragua.
According to Laryea Kingston, Inaki has a lot of experience and is confident he will lead the Black Stars attack at the World Cup.
“For me what Inaki [Williams] did in the game was very positive.
“I know most of the players that he played with, they are not used to him.
“He made a lot of positive runs, very good runs that created a lot of spaces for Kudus Mohammed, Fatawu Issahaku and Osman Bukari around the box.
“Sometimes you encourage strikers to make runs to deceive the opponents, just to stretch the opponents across the pitch.
“So it’s not necessary that if you make a run, you will get the ball.
“I’m sure Inaki Williams where he has played football up to, he understands all these dynamics in the game.
“I see him as someone that is going to lead our striking position in the tournament because of the experience and all I have seen about him as a technical person.
“Inaki Williams did not get enough balls but he did the right thing against Nicaragua.” Laryea Kingston told Radio Gold Talk Sport.
