Chicago Fire star David Accam has not hidden his exasperation after being dropped from Ghana's squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The nine-goal striker in the Major League Soccer regular season last term was excluded from the provisional 26-man squad after training in Accra with the team.
He was also named the club's Player of the Year for the second consecutive time.
"I was disappointed when i got the news that i was not part of Ghana squad for the AFCON,'' the 26-year-old told Accra-based Starr FM.
"I was very optimistic of getting a call-up into Ghana's squad for AFCON 2017 as I worked very hard last season.''
Accam was part of the final 23-man squad that played at the last edition of the tournament in Equatorial Guinea where Ghana won silver.
