The 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).
