Football | Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup

Ethiopia share spoils with Sudan

Ethiopia’s Walya Antelopes came from a goal down to hold Sudan to a one all draw in their opening Group C match of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup.

Mohammed Tarib Osman gave Sudan the lead midway through the first half when he rose highest to head a right wing cross past the keeper for a 1-0 lead.

But the Ethiopians fought back and got the equaliser on 32 minutes when Tesfaye Alebachew’s long ball through the middle put Getaneh Kebede through on goal and the striker smashed the ball in at the far post.

Kebede’s movement was creating problems for Sudan he forced another sharp save ten minutes before halftime with a left footed drive.

Three minutes later, he hit the crossbar after another Alebachew ball put him through on goal but his lob came back off the bar.

Sudan had the first chance of the second half but Khalif Ahmed misses a glorious opportunity failing to beat the keeper when through on goal on 53 minutes.

Ethiopia though finished the stronger with Kebede again foiled by the keeper 20 minutes from time.

Their final chance came seven minutes from time when Shimeles Bekele goes past two defenders but were unable to find a way past the Sudanese keeper.
