“His first goal will boost his confidence” – Asamoah Gyan backs Inaki Williams to flourish
Ghana’s all-time top scorer, Asamoah Gyan, has called for Ghanaians to keep faith in Inaki Williams after the player failed to score again for the Black Stars.
Inaki enjoyed 69 minutes of action as the Black Stars secured a narrow victory over Angola in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier courtesy of a last-ditch winner from his replacement, Antoine Semenyo.
The game means Athletic Bilbao forward has now gone seven games without a goal for Ghana since his debut ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
However, Gyan, who netted 51 goals for the senior national team believes a first goal for Inaki will get him firing more.
“It’s very difficult to adjust to the African game, he has played in Europe all his life,” he told Akoma FM.
“We need to give him more opportunities, he is improving even though he hasn’t found his feet yet but I’m sure his first goal will open the floodgates and many more will follow. His first goal will boost his confidence level. Let’s keep supporting him.”
Inaki will have another chance to get onto the scoresheet when the Black Stars take to Luanda to play Angola again.
