Athletic Club’s Iñaki Williams included in Ghana squad for World Cup after Spain cap

Ghana have announced their final 26-man group that will to travel to Qatar for the World Cup this week ahead of Group H meetings with Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea. Notably, head coach Otto Addo included 28-year-old Athletic Club striker Iñaki Williams in his squad for the tournament after the player switched allegiances from Spain.
