Spain-born Williams to play for Ghana national team


MADRID (AP) — Spain-born Iñaki Williams says he will play for Ghana’s national team. The Athletic Bilbao forward made the announcement through a video posted on his social media accounts. The 28-year-old Williams was born in Spain from parents who reached a refugee camp in Ghana after fleeing civil war in Liberia and then moved to the Basque Country region. Williams was a member of Spain’s youth squads and made one appearance with the main team in a friendly against Bosnia in 2016. He had not been called up recently by current Spain coach Luis Enrique.
