Qatar 2022: Not Andre’s fault Ghana was eliminated – Inaki Williams defends Andre Ayew



Inaki Williams has jumped to the defence of underfire Ghana captain, Andre Ayew, saying he is not at fault for the Black Stars’ exit from the 2022 World Cup.

“One of my lessons is to be always together; the captain says it is his fault, but no. This is a team. This is Ghana. Ghana loses together and wins together. I think this is the lesson for me,” Inaki told journalists on their departure from Qatar.

After missing an early penalty and Uruguay scoring twice on Friday to eliminate the Black Stars from the Qatar competition, Andre Ayew has come under heavy scrutiny from some Ghanaians.

Five months before the World Cup, the Bilboa-born footballer was one of five players to change allegiances to Ghana.

He continues by saying that only elite players have the chance to compete in a World Cup. He is so thrilled to get the opportunity to represent Ghana in the largest football tournament in the world.

“The stay here is an honour for me. My family is in the sky. I think this is an opportunity for top players. I came here to help Ghana and all my teammates and I’m very happy for the stay here.”

The Black Stars finished bottom of Group H with three points after defeats to Portugal and Uruguay between the victory against South Korea.
