Williams announced on his social media pages on Tuesday, sharing a video in which he stated that “he will defend Ghana’s T-shirt.”

“Every step we take forward has its own meaning. An evolution. A glance into the future which leaves a trace itself. A legacy. My parents have raised me with values based on humility, respect and love,” he said.

“They have taught me to embrace life. In that constant quest to continue growing and working upon the pursuit of evolving personally and professionally as an individual.”

“That’s why I feel the moment has come for me to find my origins within myself and with Africa and Ghana which means so much to me and my family.

“I want to return a small part of everything it has given to us because Ghana has played a significant part of becoming who I am as a person, as a son and as a brother.

“Today a new challenge begins. From now on, I will defend Ghana’s T-shirt with all my will whilst I give my best. I’m one of the Black Stars.” He concluded.

Inaki, 28, is now available for future Black Stars call-ups. This come as a huge boost for the Black Stars technical team, headed by coach Otto Addo, ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
