  1. If we loose to sychelles with a population of just 90,000, which the equivalent to the population of Akaki sub city, what are you going to say all of you who think the ethiopian football problem is lack of tactical discipline ? The truth is the ethiopian fotball federation officials, coaches, club managers, and the players do not know that to be a world class proffesional player, every player should spend 3- 4 hours per day runing and lifting weight in the gym. If they loose , you could be surpprised. But not me.
