Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – The Ethiopian national soccer team “Walias Antelopes” defeated its Niger counterpart 1-0 here today in a soccer friendly match.

Getaneh Kebede of Dedebit FC scored Ethiopia’s lone goal 38′ into the first half.

The Walias dominated the match and had several scoring chances but lacked the finishing touches.  The team definitely missed the services of ace strikers Saladin Said and Adane Girma. Saladin  is presently on a pre-season tour in Belgium with his Egyptian side Wadi Degla FC. Adane Girma is nursing an injury.

Meanwhile the Ethiopia vs Guinea friendly match, which was scheduled to take place here on Thursday, was canceled following a schedule dispute.  The Guinean FA asked for the match to be moved to Friday, but the Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) refused as the team is schedule to fly to Qatar to face Tunisia on Saturday.
