In an international friendly game in Spain on Tuesday evening, Ghana's Black Stars defeated Nicaragua by a solitary goal.
Following a loss to Brazil's Selacao, the Black Stars needed a big win and performance against a North American country in Spain.
Ghana had a higher share of possession in the first 45 minutes of the game but was unable to penetrate the opposition's defense line, which was well-organized at the back.
Mohammed Kudus of AFC Ajax Amsterdam hung on to the ball for far too long and failed to release it on time.
Mohammed Kudus scores in the second half, but the goal is disallowed.
Williams came within inches of scoring his first goal for Ghana in the 71st minute after receiving a nice cross from Mensah but failing to connect.
Kudus had only the goalkeeper to beat to double the Black Stars' lead in the final few minutes, but he was denied by Forvis's save.
In the 89th minute, substitute Antoine Semenyo's close-range shot forced another save from Forvis.
Ghana will play Switzerland in their final warm-up game in November, a week before their World Cup opener against Portugal.
