Ethiopia beats Botswana to top World Cup qualifying group
Source: Super Sport
Ethiopia stayed top of Group A in their Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifiers after collecting the three points off the visiting Botswana on Sunday.
The Walias left it until late in the game to beat Botswana 1-0 in Addis Ababa.
Ethiopia broke Botswana's hearts in the 88th minute when striker Getaneh Kebede beat Kabelo Dambe to hand the hosts the three points.
Kebede had only been on the pitch for 42 minutes before his goal after replacing midfielder Adane Girma in the 46th minute.
Meanwhile, victory left Ethiopia still unbeaten in Group A from three games and to collect their second home win in the race to Brazil.
Ethiopia remains unbeaten in Group A on seven points from three games, two more than Bafana Bafana.
Bafana Bafana are second on five points following their 2-0 win over Central Africa Republic just 24 hours earlier in Cape Town.
CAR are third on three points from as many games played.
Meanwhile, Botswana stay rooted at the bottom of Group A with one point from three matches ahead of the reverse fixture against Ethiopia on June 6 in Gaborone.
Victory in Botswana in June for Ethiopia will surely end The Zebra's interest in the race to potentially turn Group A into a two horse race with Bafana Bafana ahead of their penultimate meeting on June 14 in Addis Ababa.
Our team play fantastic game keep up the good Job we are proud of you.
Wonderful! I am so happy Ethiopia is clearly coming back when it comes to soccer..
It is not by accident Ethiopia qualifies for the African cup of nations.
I am glad Ethiopia won.It seems Ethiopia is on the right track politically ,economically ,socially & apparently ” footballically".
As a peaceful neighbour I applaud Ethiopia´s achievements.
At z 88th minute on their on pitch they lucked out again!! This ain’t worth bragging about,get real ppl,dont ger excited again!!
The skinny boys with no brain. Their brain is on their feet. That is why they made goal at last minute. Haaaaaaa
I’m happy with the result, but I don’t think our team is with its grace as it had in South Africa. Need to ork hard b/s the coming three matchs will be tough.
Now I have come to know that there’s nothing good that comes out of Ethiopia makes you happy. These boys are on the top of their group, two points above South Africa; a team that had been to the world cup.
The way I see it is this :- If success makes you unhappy, what can you be happy about? Any good news that comes out of Ethiopia makes you noticeably uncomfortable, but why??…. You old azz, you will die unhappy. And on one would care! I don’t even like woyane, and I hate you more!!!

your comment, esp on people like C\’est moi senait [Visitor], hmm..syaing “I don’t even like woyane, and I hate you more!!!” I wanted just to say my own.
Having seen the bind hatred and idiocy of so called “oppositions” and/or “diaspora” AND the racism I face everyday from Whites, who so called “oppositions” would prefer to lick their “behind” than compromise for common good,
have not only make me hate like you, but also made me consider joining woyane! Woyane is NOT my choice or favorite BUT I believe woyane is much more in the “right” track than are people like Al G/Mariam, C\’est moi senait, Berhanu Nega et al., who are nothing BUT CANCERS!
this website has become a playground for haters!
Ye la gare duuriyiii. Bombolino used to be à person i know there ,one of the best basket ball player.
Botswana is a desert country?
I am very happy with my Waliyas!!!! They played well and pulled it off at the end. I was again disappointed with the horrible situation of the pitch at Addis Ababa stadium. We only have one stadium and its pitch looks like “yesefer meda". But no one beats ETV when it comes to disaster. ETV really sucks. The picture quality was nasty. It looked as though they were using only one camera. Then comes ETV’s signature issue:” we apologize for technical problem”. They were not able to fix the issue in time and thus, we missed the entire second half. Shame on you ETV!!!!!
We need a big, new modern, a state of the art Stadium.
Be ready everybody! I’m coming to your neighbourhood soon for a big fund raising event to build a stadium in Addis Ababa!
Imagine if the Walyas made it to the world cup, next thing will be, we need to host an African nations cup, and even the all African games.
It is really a shame, Addis being the Capital of Africa, but never hosted the all African games????

“Botswana is a desert country?”
What is the point really by saying that?
Botswana is not a desert country, There is no desert below East and North Africa. West, central and South African countries are really green and most of them are comparable to the tropical rain forests of Latin America. Botswana is a very green country adjacent to South Africa, very rich in natural resources and the wealthiest and democratic nation in Africa comparable to Sweden.
IDIOT WANNABE ARAB TERRORIST!
I think the bokko aram terrorist garbage ahmed is calling Botswanna a desert country, just because of the famous Kalahari desert which is situated mostly in Botswanna and in part Namibia and South Africa. It is like calling USA a desert country because of the Grand canyon in Arizona.
The Kalahari desert is a semi desert with huge tracts of excellent grazing for wildlife. It even have a pemenantly flowing river called river OKAVANGO, which made it haven to wild animals like, elephants, giraffs, and even for predators like Lion, Tigers, and chitthas.
ALL YOU Fascsit woyane cadres, SHOULD BE PLEASED TO HAVE YOUR RIGHTS RESPECTED ON THE DIASPORA WEB SITES AND BE ABLE TO SAY WHAT EVER GARBAGE YOU WANT TO GET YOUR PAY TO FILL YOUR BELLY.
YOU SEE, THIS IS WHAT THE FASCIST TIGRE PEOPLE LIBERATION FRONT IS NOT ALLOWING THE PEOPLE TO HAVE. THE RIGHT TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES. do you get it.
