Ghana's AFCON opponents Niger lose friendly

Posted On Sunday, 30th December 2012

Niger skipper Moussa Maazou missed the friendly against Ethiopia

Ethiopia beat fellow 2013 AFCON finalists Niger 1-0 in a warm-up game on Sunday in Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia match winner was Getaneh Kebede, who hit target on 37 minutes.

The 20-year-old striker from Ethiopian club Dedebit enhanced his growing reputation in front of goal against a Niger side, who were without several top stars including skipper Moussa Maazou.

Gebaneh is also the Ethiopian league’s current top scorer with nine goals before the two-month AFCON break and was the 2011/2012 season top gun with 20 goals.

Meanwhile, Ethiopia will host Guinea in their second pre-AFCON friendly at a date to be announced this week.

This was after the proposed game against fellow AFCON finalists Togo was called off for “operational reasons”.

The Walia Antelopes will later travel to Qatar to play Tunisia in their third friendly on January 7 in Doha.

Ethiopia are in Group C along with Nigeria, Zambia and Burkina Faso.

    Nigeria and Zambia will go through with the Eagles topping the group.We are likely to meet the Super eagles or elephants of CIV at the semi.

  4. Chipolopolo says:

    Burkina Faso has never beaten Zambia…. It took Nigeria penalties after being outplayed to beat Zambia the last time they met at an AFCON… Zambia has always had a beter record against ethiopia….

    Its interesting people think super-chickens and burkina faso will top this group.

  5. bereket says:

    Ethiopia and Nigeria will go through very easily. Lately Ethiopia is winning every match thrown in their way.
