Team Ethiopia : Captures from Ethiopia vs S Africa Game

P1120594The Lonely Planet guidebook author recommends , “It is always possible to talk about Football almost with all Ethiopians”. It’s actually true. One of the founding fathers of African football, Ethiopians are in love with it. Half of Ethiopian populations were not even born when Ethiopia took a major trophy in Football. (Unlike Athletics, Ethiopia achieves quite remarkable in middle & long distance running).  Now, Ethiopians are even dreaming big – World Cup Brazil 2014. They lead their group which makes them African top 10! (They actually qualified to the playoff, until FIFA announced there is some technicality issues).

I attached some pictures I captured on Ethiopia against South Africa match. This picture is under creative common license. Feel free to use the picture for your work without any prior request for me. The pictures’ resolution is reduced on purpose for blog use. If you want to use the pictures for print, please send me a request by email for high-quality pictures.
