Chris Hughton leaps to the defence of Inaki Williams

Ghana coach Chris Hughton has leaped to the defence of his struggling striker Inaki Williams ahead of the game against Angola in Luanda.

The Athletic Bilbao forward is yet to score a goal for the Black Stars after seven matches in the Ghana jersey.

Despite his goal-scoring drought with the Black Stars, Hughton insists the Spain-born forward adds more to the team.

“It’s very much part and parcel of the game. What we know about Inaki is he is a very good player, playing in a good team in a good league,” he said.

“With someone like Inaki, it’s not all about goals. You know he plays consistently for his team. He is a play that makes a lot of runs,but he stretches play, which sometimes benefits other players.

“The goals will come, but sometimes it doesn’t come as quick as you want. What’s more important for us is his contribution, ”

Inaki Williams will be looking to break his drought when Ghana faces Angola in Luanda on March
