2014 CHAN: Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria qualify for finals
There was redemption of sorts for Ethiopia's Minyahil Teshome Beyene as his spot kick sealed Ethiopia's place at the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals in South Africa.
They are joined at the finals of the tournament for the locally-based players by Uganda and Nigeria, who qualified despite a 2-0 loss in Ivory Coast.
Beyene was the man at the centre of the mistake that saw Ethiopia lose three vital 2014 World Cup qualifying points but was the hero as Ethiopia beat Rwanda on penalties on Saturday.
Rwanda won the second leg of the qualifier in Kigali 1-0 to make it 1-1 on aggregate.
Great job “Waliyas"!!!
P.S. Please rename the team to something more catchy. Waliyas? Really?
On behalf of Ethiopians in SA, I confirm that as we did during AFCON 2013, we’ll support our national team for CHAN 2014.
So, how many of you guys really think Ethiopia could win the FIFA world cup. I am saying this out of ignorance about the game of Soccer. I know little about sports other than ((USA football) & Basketball).
I was about to go off on you till I read your last statments. I like your honesty. Well, The chance of Ethiopia winning the world cup at this stage is zero. It was the first time they even made it to African Cup Of Nations after 31 years and, they were kicked out on the first round.
I hope to see them in the world cup this time. That would make my childhood dream a reality. However, being a realistic individual I would not hold then responsible to do the unthinkable. Anyone who would think they would win FIFA worldcup this time, should check himself/herself checked.
It would have been possible for them to go to to the second round in AFRICAN CUP OF NATIONS THOUGH.
Liju sayweled mazeya….. minamin alu. Sosoye, eski mejemeria le Fifa world cup enlef. once we accomplish that, we may start talking about beating brazil, argentina, germany… and winning the cup. honestly, making it to the tourney will be a victory of historical proportion by itself for us. I want more yemil kale ejun yawuta. I really don’t want anything more from our current players. Just train hard, play smart and make it to Brazil. That is all i want for now.

Thanks for the response. Most of the people that play soccer in the USA are Mexicans, however lately I have noticed there is more and more soccer games on TV. I asked the question because I really would like to see more and more Ethiopians athletes in GOLF, SOCCER, TENNIS, Basketball, Volleyball, UFC/MMA etc. Because seeing the same people on TV every Sunday or Saturday playing GOLF, Tennis etc. is really boring. I guess I am being a little selfish
I second that. Passing to the world cup is history on its own. As much as i hate the current government, things are going to the right direction for ethiopia under their leadership or is it a coincidence?
This is yet another great opportunity for |Ethiopian players to showcase their talent and catch the attention of foreign teams.
Congratulations to the players and coach and everybody connected to their success.
There are some names to choose from, some people suggested [black lion] but i think we are not good enough to be lion. i think the most appropriate name easy for foreigners to remember and internationally known name is BLUE NILE
Hi Nazret could you post this link please? Because it has no comment option ,I am from Indianapolis .All of us has to comment on it.
IT IS A GOOD MOVE FOR ETHIOPIAN FOOT BALL FOR THE COMING GENARATION
The Ethiopian national football team is was previously known as ‘the Black Lions’. Why is this name not in use.
