Sudan based midfielder Addis Hintsa is visibly one of Ethiopia‘s most talented players a fact proved by his impact when he was brought in the second half against Nigeria in Addis Ababa.

However the Al Ahly Shendi playmaker is categorical his team mates have to avoid the same mistakes they made against Nigeria in Calabar especially in the dying minutes of the game but also alluded to the fact that despite respecting the African champions they should not be underrated in Calabar.

“We played brilliant football in Addis but we realize that the same must be accompanied by goals to go past a good side like Nigeria who are not easy. It will be a tough match and no one should expect an easy ride. We maybe the under dogs in this match but Nigeria should expect a good fight at their hands for the entire 90 minutes.”

“We have always dreamed of being at the World Cup and though our dreams were dented at home I believe its not over until the fat lady sings,” Addis told

Addis is one of the Ethiopian foreign based players have joined the Sudanese team from 2012 league champions Debedit.
