Last weekend, the National Football team – nicknamed Walya – made history. The two goals scored by Adane and Saladin, at the 63rd and 67th minute, respectively; delivered a decisive 2:0 win against the Sudanese and secured its entry to the forthcoming African Cup of Nations.

The victory was the latest in a series of uplifting news in the foot ball arena. Just a day earlier, the Youth football team (a.k.a. the Keye Kebero) won its first international game, while, few weeks earlier, the Women’s football team (a.k.a. the Lucy) qualified for the African Women Championship.

“Football is playing a great role here and in the continent. I will do everything at my disposal to support and encourage the game in Ethiopia,….I have also come to recognize the tremendous progress African football has made, but I deeply regret the fact that Ethiopia has not made any progress”. PM Meles Zenawi
