Ethiopia Coach: We'll Fight to Win in Nigeria


Coach of the Walya Ibex of Ethiopia Sewnet Bishaw has stated that tactical blunders on his part was one of the reasons they lost 2-1 to the Super Eagles in the first leg of the 2014 World Cup qualifier in Addis Ababa on Sunday, reports Bishaw admitted that the substitutions he made during the game did not yield the desired result but remained optimistic ahead of the return leg in November 16.”When we scored we thought things will be easy. But when we conceded we couldn’t keep up with the pace of the Nigerian side. Plus the substitutions I made didn’t work as planned.””We are equal and there is no difference between Ethiopia and Nigeria. We will go to their venue to play for a win because football gives every side equal opportunity and we will take our chances,” he said.Bishaw went on to lament the standard of officiating by Cameroonian referee Neant Alioum.”I think the referee was poor. We scored a goal and he cancelled it out and also did other things that were questionable.” (DEAR READER, you have the right to express your opinion here. What’s your opinion on the above story?
