Ghana striker Richmond Boakye Yiadom says he has gained some experience despite his inability to play a single match at the just ended Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa due to injury.
The Italy-based footballer showed promising prospects during the teamís pre-tournament friendly matches against Egypt and Tunisia in Abu Dhabi.
But an ankle injury on the last day of training before the teamís departure for the tournament curtailed his dreams.
However, the 19-year-old is looking at the positives from his disappointing trip to the 2013 Nations Cup.
"I was not disappointed because it is part of the game. Being there seeing some top players and even participating or been called up to be part of the 23- man squad was a great thing and I think it was a great experience I had there," the Sassuolo player said.
"I would have wished to play but whatever happens we have to give thanks to God."
