Ethiopia secure Tunisia friendly



Ethiopia will face Tunisia in a build up match on Monday after Egypt turned down the latter’s offer due to undisclosed reasons.

The Walya Antelopes silenced Niger 1-0 in their previous friendly and a win against Tunisia, Afcon finalists will be a major boost to the side ahead of this year’s Africa Cup of nations in South Africa.

The team which was earlier this week trimmed to 23 players will face the North Africa side in Doha before they fly out to Qatar.

Dereje Alemu (Sebeta city), Aklilu Ayenew (Dedebit) and striker Abdul Wali Aman (Washington University) were dropped from the final squad.

The sole representatives from East Africa overpowered rivals Sudan last year to book a ticket to the prestigious tournament.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Jemal Tassew (Coffee FC), Sisay Bancha (Dedebit), Zerihun Tadelle (Saint George)

Defenders: Degu Debebe (Saint George), Biyadglign Eliase (Saint George), Abebaw Butako (Saint George), Alula Girma (Saint George), Seyum Tesfaye (Dedebit), Birhanu Bogale (Dedebit), Aynalem Hailu (Dedebit)

Midfielders: Asrat Megersa (EEPCO), Addis Hintsa (Dedebit), Yared Zinabu (Saint George), Shimelese Bekele (Saint George), Behailu Asefa (Dedebit), Minyahel Teshome (Dedebit), Dawit Estifanose (Coffee FC), Yussuf Saleh (Syrianska)

Forwards: Saladin Seid (Wadi Degla), Adane Girma (Saint George), Umed Ukuri (Saint George), Getaneh Kebede (Dedebit), Fuad Ibrahim (Minnesota Stars)
