Masina was surprise omission in the Sihlangu Semnikati squad announced by head coach Musa Zwane in preparations for the game against the Black Stars to be played in Mbabane in few weeks time.
Zwane has told Swazi media that Yuki has been dropped from squad due to lack of fitness and game time at Pirates.
Speaking to KickOff.com, Masina said despite being disappointed at being left out of the squad he wished his country well in the Afcon game.
"I have sacrificed a lot coming back to Swaziland to play for the national team and most of the time not even getting an allowance or refund for travelling expenses but I committed myself to the team because I love my country.
"I would have loved to help my country during the game against Ghana but seemingly the coaches have their own ideas. I feel somehow that this is a blessing in disguise as it will allow me more time to focus with career and fight for my jersey at Pirates."
