Spain young forward Nico Williams has revealed what his brother Inaki Williams told him after Black Stars suffered elimination from the 2022 FIFA World.
According to the young man, his big brother promised to fly back to Qatar to watch him play if Spain had got to the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar final.
Nico Williams: “Iñaki told me that if we reach the final, he will be here. My brother is very happy to represent Ghana and I was very clear that I wanted to be with Spain.”
Unfortunately for him, Spain were booted out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar by Morocco at the round of 16 stages last Tuesday.
Both Williams couldn’t go far in the competition held in the middle east nation.
A 2-0 win for Uruguay in their Group H decider with Ghana prevented the Black Stars from enacting any sort of revenge for their quarter-final loss at the 2010 World Cup, but this pulsating victory for La Celeste at the 2022 edition came with a heavy price.
South Korea’s 2-1 win over Portugal in the corresponding group stage decider saw them leapfrog both Uruguay and Ghana late on, meaning they’ll progress to the last 16, and send both of these sides home despite Uruguay’s victory.
The build-up to the match had been dominated by Luis Suarez’s handball right at the end of extra-time in their 2010 knockout match. Asamoah Gyan’s miss proved fatal for Ghana 12 years ago, but captain Andre Ayew, the only remaining player from the 2010 squad, couldn’t avenge.
