All Africa Games: Walias U-23 side eliminated

Khartoum, Sudan -Ethiopia’s Walia U-23 side was eliminated from the All-Africa Games 4-1 on aggregate score following a 2-0 defeat here today.

The Sudanese won the first leg match 2-1 in Dire Dawa.

Walia’s coach Mariano Barreto told the media earlier that his side has been working hard for the past 2 weeks and he believes that they could reverse the score but it turn out to be another empty promise.

It is about time that the Ethiopian Football Federation does something about coach Barreto, who is said to receive $18,000/month in salary, as Ethiopia surely deserve a better result than the 1 victory, 1 draw & 6 defeats that the teams register in 8 matches under his care.
