Exclusive: The former defender has urged the Black Stars to dispatch the Walias in the qualifying game to prove they are still one of the best

Former Ghana defender Dogo Moro wants the Black Stars to prove they are still one of the best sides on the continent by thrashing Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Sunday. 
 
With leaders Kenya opening a four-point gap between them and Ghana in Group F, Kwesi Appiah's men are in dire need of full points to brighten their chances of making it to the Afcon finals.
 
"Ghana is a big football nation so the players must know that any result aside victory would be a disgrace to us especially the former players who gave out their best in the past. Therefore, they should try their best to defeat Ethiopia," Dogo told Goal.
 
"The players should not focus on winning bonuses and individual glories because that will not help the country to win the game. At this stage, qualification is what is at stake so they should play as a team to achieve results.
 
"In all fairness, Ethiopia don't have quality players who can match Ghana so we should make a huge statement by thrashing them in front of their fans. We have won four Afcon titles and those achievements didn't just take place. I remember how we managed to win big games during our time because we were together as a team," he added.
 
Dogo was a key figure in the Black Stars' squad that won the 1963 and 1965 Afcon titles.
