Vitoria Guimaraes are jubilating over David Addyâ€™s exclusion from the Ghana squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 22-year-old was hoping to make his first Nations Cup appearance following an impressive debut season with the Portuguese club.
But the left-back was dealt a major blow when he was left out of the Black Starsâ€™ provisional 26-man squad for the tournament that kicks off on January 19 in South Africa.
News of Addyâ€™s snub has been flamboyantly reported on Vitoriaâ€™s official website with coach Â Rui Vitoria overjoyed by â€˜his good luckâ€™.
The ex FC Porto player has become an integral part of the side since arriving on a permanent deal at the beginning of the season.
Vitoriaâ€™s joy is even more evident with the knowledge El-Arbi Hilal Soudani and Issam El Adoua are likely to join the Algeria and Morocco national teams respectively for the tournament.
