Inaki Williams almost does a ‘Dion Dublin’ on Portugal keeper Diogo Costa but slips at vital moment



World Cup 2022

On November 8, 1997, while playing for Coventry City in the Premier League, Dion Dublin managed (somehow) to hide from the sight of Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given. The Irishman had placed the ball on the ground, ready to kick the ball down the pitch, when Dublin snuck in, taking the ball away from Given and ramming the ball into the empty net.

At the 2022 World Cup, Ghanaian Inaki Williams almost achieved the same feat. Losing 3-2 to Portugal in their opening match of the tournament in Group H, Williams stood behind goalkeeper Diogo Costa, who had just collected the ball from a cross.
