Williams, who switched his allegiance from Spain to Ghana in 2022, made a significant impact in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
After scoring two goals in four matches at the 2022 World Cup, he continued to showcase his talent in a crucial match against Madagascar on November 17, 2023.
The game was characterised by tight defences and limited chances for both teams. With the match seemingly heading for a goalless draw, Williams entered the game in the 85th minute.
Utilising his speed and strength, he disrupted the Madagascar defence and created opportunities for his teammates.
In the 93rd minute, receiving a pass from Gideon Mensah, Williams unleashed a powerful free-header from outside the box that found the top corner of the net.
The late goal not only secured a dramatic 1-0 victory for Ghana but also earned them three crucial points in the Group I opener. Ghana is now tied with Mali, who also secured a victory in their first game against Comoros.
The upcoming match against Mali on November 21, 2023, holds significant importance as it could determine the group’s leader.
Williams’ celebration with teammates reflected the relief and joy of breaking the deadlock and contributing to Ghana’s successful start in the qualifiers.
