Ethiopia to face Burkina Faso ahead of Calabar tie

Ethiopia’s head coach Sewnet Bishaw has disclosed that they are planning to face Burkina Faso in an international friendly next week.

“We want to use this game to prepare well for the 2014 World Cup qualifier return leg against Nigeria,” explained Bishaw.

He said the game will take place November 4-5.

The Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) also confirmed the friendly yesterday ahead of their return leg against African champions Nigeria in Calabar. Nigeria won the first leg 2-1 and Ethiopia will have to be at their best to win in Calabar.



Burkina Faso beat Algeria 3-2 in another World Cup 2014 play off and will be using the friendly to prepare ahead of the return match.

 “We are already training hard preparing for the game. We also have the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup after the World Cup qualifier,” added Bishaw, who has been successful with the national side.
