Ethiopia Vs Sudan, 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying Second Leg

Ethiopian national team plays Sudan this Sunday, October 14, in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying last round second leg tie in Addis Ababa Stadium.
Ethiopia lost the first leg in Sudan 5-3 and need to win by at least two goals to book their place in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa next year.

Ethiopia national team coach Sewnet Bishaw believes his side can overcome the deficit. “I cannot deny that it was a heavy defeat. But it is possible to reverse that result with a simple 2-0 win in front of our fans.” He told CAFonline in an interview.
“The team spirit is high. I have been in coaching business at the national level for years but I have never seen a team with this kind of determination and high spirit. We have been together for nearly two months. That could be our source of strength. Everybody is keen to get the needed win over Sudan and qualify for the 2013 African Cup of Nations for the first time in 31 years. I am hopeful that we will make it,”

First Leg Highlight



  1. yes!!!!Go for it 'walias' 2-0,3-1 or 4-2 Absolutely possible given the fact that we play on home soil in front of highly spirited fans and on such a high altitude(3rd highest capital city in the world) proving to be deadly for Sudanese players.
