Ethiopia picks second string for Cecafa



Ethiopia will send its second string team for Cecafa Tusker Cup 2012 in Uganda.

According to local website Ethiosports, the Ethiopia FA have opted to name a squad of 21 players that isn’t made up of their star players.

Hence, the move means that the country will certainly not be involved in competitive matches as part of their build up to the African Cup of Nations. The head coach will be Coach Seyoum Kebede, assisted by Daniel Gebremariam.

Ethiopia have been drawn against defending champions Zambia, Nigeria and Burkina Faso in group C.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Binyam Habtamu (Hawassa City), Dereje Alemu (Sebeta) and Samson Assefa (Harar Beer).

Defenders: Girma Bekele (Hawassa), Aklilu Ayenew (Dedebit FC), Mehari Mena (CBE), Robel Girma and Moges Tadesse (Sidama Coffee).

Midfielders: Gatoch Panom and Massoud Mohammed (Eth. Coffee), Yared Zenabu & Mesfin Kidane (St. George), Elias Mamo (CBE), Tilahun Wolde (Defence), Abdulkarim Hassen (EEPCO) and Mulualem Mesfin (Arba Minch).

Forwards: Yonathan Kebede (EEPCO), Dawit Fekadu (Dedebit FC), Amele Milkiyas (Arba Minch), Fuad Ibrahim (Minnesota Stars) and Fikru Teffera (Thanh Hoa).
