Williams was born in Spain to Ghanaian immigrants and said last year that he feels more Spanish, despite his love for Ghana.

Today, the Athletic Bilbao striker is now eligible to play for the Black Stars of Ghana in Qatar.

According to FIFA rules, players can switch countries if they have not played more than three matches for a country before the age of 21 and have not participated in a World Cup or continental tournament.

“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.”
