In a photo shared on social media after the victory, Inaki is seen giving his little brother a kiss on his cheek, showing the strong bond between the duo. On Sunday, the brothers recreated their childhood memory.

The Copa del Rey is the first major trophy the brothers have won together with their boyhood club Athletic Bilbao.

In 2022, Inaki decided to represent Ghana, the country of his parents while his brother pledged allegiance to the country of their birth, Spain.

The Athletic Bilbao stars became the second Ghanaian brothers to represent different nations at the World Cup, with Jerome and Kevin Prince Boateng being the first.

Inaki has scored a goal in 17 appearances for the Black Stars, per Transfermarkt.

Inaki Williams breaks down in tears

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghana forward, Inaki Williams broke down in tears as he celebrated with his younger brother, Nico, following Athletic Bilbao's Copa del Rey triumph.

Los Rojiblancos defeated Real Mallorca on penalties to win the Spanish Cup for the first time in 40 years.

The Williams brothers played an influential role in that success, with Nico providing an important assist in the final and earning the Player of the Tournament prize.

Williams has no regrets over Ghana decision

Sports Brief also reported that Inaki Williams opened up on his struggles with the senior national team of Ghana.

The Spain-born striker decided to switch nationalities and represent the Black Stars in 2022 but has netted only once for Ghana.

The Athletic Bilbao star endured a difficult 2022 FIFA World Cup and struggled at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast early this year.
