Williams Bros score in same game for the first time

Inaki Williams and Nico Williams scored in a game they both featured in for the first time in 42 outings in Athletic Bilbao’s 3-2 win over Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish La Liga.

Inaki scored Bilbao’s first in the 14th minute and Nico scored at the San Mames in the 33rd minute with both goals sandwiching Oihan Sancet’s 28th minute goal in a dominant first half display from Bilbao.

Rayo threatened to pull even later on in the game after Radamel Falcao scored in the 80th minute but Bilbao held on to clinch its fourth win in six games.

Ghanaian defender Abdul Mumin made his Rayo Vallecano debut after securing a move from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes. Mumin came on in the 79th minute for fellow defender Florian Lejeune.

This is the first time the Williams brothers have scored in the same competitive game and bookends a wonderful week for the football family.

Inaki received his call up to Ghana’s Black Stars for friendly games against Brazil and Nicaragua; the 28 year old recently committed his international football career to Ghana.

Younger brother Nico got called up by Spain ahead of friendly games against Switzerland and Portugal.
