I'm Not Stopping Nico Williams To Play For Ghana - Spain Coach Luis Enrique

The tactician defended the selection of the Athletic Bilbao forward who is eligible for the Black Stars while his brother Inaki switched nationality.

Spain coach Luis Enrique has denied claims he has called up Nico Williams to the national team squad to keep him away from playing for Ghana.

Nico earned his first senior call-up when he was named in Spain’s squad for their Uefa Nations League matches against Switzerland and Portugal this month and while he turns out for La Roja, his brother Inaki will be making his debut for Ghana.

The Williams brothers are both eligible to feature for the Black Stars, having been born to Ghanaian parents in Spain but with Inaki choosing the Black Stars in June, Nico opted to play for the European nation.
