Ghanaian forward Inaki Williams says Black Stars will do everything they can to make it out of the group stage at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar later this year.

The Black Stars newbie says it is not going to be easy at the World Cup for the four-time Africa Cup of Nations Champions but they will do everything they can to secure a second round place.

The Athletic Bilbao striker recently agreed to play for the Black Stars team after meeting with the Ghana Football Association president and the head coach for the national team, Otto Addo.

The 27-year-old Spanish La Liga striker is expected to make his Ghana debut in September when Ghana takes on Angola in a double header in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Ghana will begin their campaign against Portugal in Qatar, then face the Asians before concluding against Uruguay in a rematch of the 2010 World Cup quarter-final match, which the South Americans won on penalties.

“It’s very special for Ghana to qualify for Qatar. I think anything can happen. I think it is a difficult group. It is not going to be easy for Ghana but the team is going to do everything to qualify for the next round,” he told to TV3.

He holds the LaLiga record for consecutive appearances — 233 games — after bettering the previous mark of 202 in October.

Inaki is one of the five players born abroad who recently agreed to switch nationality to play for Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament and in their international career.
