In a captivating exhibition of skill and determination, Inaki Williams etched his name into the 2026 World Cup qualifiers history by scoring his debut goal for Ghana in an exhilarating clash against Madagascar at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The thunderous cheers from the passionate crowd reverberated as Williams demonstrated his prowess on the field, propelling the team to a historic victory in a match that will be remembered in Ghanaian football history.
Williams made his debut for Ghana against Brazil, featuring in the second half of the 3–0 loss in Le Havre, France in September 2022.
Despite a lackluster first half where Madagascar posed challenges, Coach Chris Hughton’s strategic changes in the second half aimed to turn the game in favor of the hosts. Although Ghana struggled to breach Madagascar’s defense, late substitutions, including the introduction of youngster Ernest Nuamah, shifted the momentum.
In the dying moments of injury time, Inaki Williams secured the win with a powerful header, connecting with a cross from Gideon Mensah, sealing the victory for the Black Stars of Ghana.
