Inaki Williams is out for Ghana qualifiers after undergoing surgery to remove a piece of glass from his foot.

Ghanaian striker Inaki Williams’ World Cup dreams have been put on hold after undergoing surgery to remove a piece of glass from his foot. The news comes as a major blow to the Black Stars’ preparations for the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde confirmed Williams’ absence, revealing that a two-centimeter piece of glass had been lodged in the striker’s foot for some time. Apparently, Williams stepped on the glass two years ago, but it went unnoticed until recently.

The surgery makes Williams a major doubt for Ghana’s crucial qualifiers against Mali and the Central African Republic. Valverde explained that Williams underwent a scan after a recent match, which revealed the lingering shard. The surgery to remove the glass will sideline Williams for an unspecified period.

This is a frustrating setback for both Williams and the Ghanaian national team. Williams, who recently switched allegiance to Ghana, was expected to be a key player in their World Cup qualification campaign. His pace and attacking prowess would have been a valuable asset for the Black Stars.

The Ghana Football Association has yet to comment on Williams’ absence or a potential replacement for the upcoming matches. Fans will be waiting anxiously to see if Williams recovers in time to contribute to the qualifiers.
