Spanish Ghanaian winger Nico Williams named in Euro 2024 team of the week

Spanish-Ghanaian winger Nico Williams has been recognized for his outstanding performance in the ongoing Euro 2024 tournament.

Sofascore, a leading sports analytics platform, has named Williams in their prestigious Euro 2024 team of the week.

Williams’ stellar performance was instrumental in Spain’s commanding 4-1 victory over Georgia in Cologne. His agility, precision, and tactical acumen on the field set the stage for a thrilling Euro 2024 quarterfinal.

Williams, one of the tournament’s standout players, sealed Spain’s third goal with a sublime finish in the 75th minute, effectively ending the contest.

He now has one goal and one assist from the three games he featured in.

The 2008 and 2012 champions now face host nation Germany in a blockbuster clash in Stuttgart on Friday, with both teams in top form, making it the most anticipated game of the competition so far.

Luis de la Fuente’s Spain has been exceptional, and an early own goal from Robin Le Normand that put Georgia ahead never seriously threatened their impressive campaign.

Le Normand’s misfortune was canceled out in the 39th minute when Williams set up Rodri for the equalizer.

Fabian Ruiz put Spain ahead in the 51st minute, assisted by 16-year-old Lamine Yamal. Williams then deservedly scored, bamboozling Georgia’s defense.

Dani Olmo completed the 4-1 rout, firmly establishing Spain as formidable contenders.

Below is the team of the week:
