The striker was seconds away from scoring a crucial equalizer for his team in stoppage time.
After a hard-fought first half, fans were on the edge of their seats from the 65th minute when five goals were scored between the two teams.
Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score in five World Cup tournaments when he converted a penalty to open the scoring for Portugal.
Ghana then equalized eight minutes later through Andre Ayew, before the Portuguese extended their lead to 3-1. Osman Bukari was able to score back in the 89th minute, and Williams had a golden opportunity to steal a match point.
