Inaki Williams is an incredible player, and he has been in brilliant form for Bilbao this season. The goal he scored against Girona summed up the kind of season he has had for his club side. The goal was just brilliant.

Emmanuel went on to highlight the reason why Inaki struggles whenever he plays for the Black Stars, attributing his woes to the lack of chance creation in the team. He said:

Inaki struggles for the Black Stars because we do not create chances for him. Anytime he plays for the Black Stars, the chance of creation is quite low. Because of this, he does not really find his feet in front of goal. There is also a disconnect between the attack and the midfield. He's the kind of player if you create chances for him, he will score.
