Ghana's disappointing exit from the AFCON stemmed from various issues, including the absence of key players like Daniel Kofi Kyereh.

Kyereh's absence created a gap in the Black Stars' midfield and dealt his Bundesliga side Freiburg a tough blow.

The midfielder has returned to training after missing an entire season and several crucial games for club and country.
