Essien asked to be excused from national team duty in order to sort out his injury and club situation.

With both secured, the powerful midfielder is now ready to resume serious action once more again.

?I have got my energy back and I feel I can do a job,? he said.

?It was important for me to play a lot at Madrid and prove my fitness.?

Essien is expected to feature for the Black Stars in their final 2014 World Cup Group D qualifier against Zambia in September.
