Per Wikipedia :
Williams was also coveted by the Ghanaian national team around the time of his Spain debut in 2016. He was watched by their Spanish scout Gerard Nus.
In 2021, with no further competitive appearances to tie him to his birth nation permanently, he spoke of the possibility of playing for Ghana:
“My parents are from Accra and I really enjoy going.
But I wasn’t born or raised there, my culture’s here, and there are players for whom it would mean more.
I don’t think it would be right to take the place of someone who really deserves to go and who feels Ghana 100%.”
Local media interpreted this as a rejection of any approach from the Black Stars.
However, on 5 July 2022, Williams announced that he was making himself available to be called up for the African nation in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
