However, Ghanaian Sports journalist Gary Al Smith who works for Joy Sports said Inaki is likely to play for Ghana. Gary posted on his twitter page that a top ranking official of the Ghana Football Association told him the senior brother “was very open to featuring for Ghana” but “it is not a two weeks matter”
“Inaki Williams in particular, was very open to featuring for Ghana and in fact, the process is very much on course. It is not a two weeks matter. It takes time. But we’re confident it will be done before long” Gary posted.
