Ghanaian forward, Inaki Williams, helped Athletic Bilbao reach the Copa del Rey final after scoring and providing an assist in the 3-0 victory over Atletico Madrid at home.

Nico served his senior brother with the opener after just 13 minutes, making a brilliant move on the left before sending in a cross which was met by Inaki to convert.

In a video shared on social media, the eldest of the brothers was spotted volleying home from the beautiful cross at the San Mames Stadium.

Inaki went from scorer to provider after taking on his marker and then sending in a cross, which was finished by his younger brother moments before half-time.

The Spain-born Ghanaian forward has been in fine form for Athletic Club this season, netting his 10th goal of the campaign, per Transfermarkt.

Gorka Guruzeta completed a dominated display by the hosts after adding the third on the hour mark.

Williams endured a difficult Africa Cup of Nations campaign with the Black Stars as Ghana were eliminated in the group stages yet again.

Sports Brief also reported that Inaki Williams' Ghanaian hotel was inaugurated before the AFCON and has opened to the public.

The Athletic Bilbao star named the hotel - situated in Eastern Ghana - after his club's home venue, the San Mames Stadium.

The striker missed the commissioning of the hotel due to his involvement with the Black Stars and their training for the AFCON.
