Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says his Black Stars teammates are determined to put lessons learned from their abject World Cup campaign to good use and win the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars will begin their quest to reach next year’s finals against Uganda on Saturday.

Ghana are without an African title since 1982 but have reached the semi-finals of the last four editions of the Nations Cup.

Dauda, who made his AFCON debut in South Africa last year, is confident the Black Stars will end their extended search for a title in Morocco.

“We all know we did not meet the expectations of Ghanaians during the World Cup but we have another opportunity appease Ghanaian,” the Chippa United goalkeeper told

“The AFCON is another important trophy and we determined to use the experience gained there to win the AFCON next year Morocco.

“We are all united towards that goal.”

Dauda who has returned to active football will be Kwesi Appiah’s first choice when they face Uganda.
