Ethiopia advances on penalty kicks

Sisay BanchaKigali, Rwanda - The Ethiopian national soccer team “The Walias” advanced to the finals of the Orange African Nations Championship after defeating Rwanda 6-5 on penalty kicks.
The Walias, who won the first leg match 1-0, and Rwanda did likewise today during regulation time. So the faith of the two teams were left to be decided on penalty kicks.
The two teams were tied 4-4 after the first set of penalty kicks. So, a second round of penalty kicks were need. Ethiopia’s goalie Sisay Bancha saved one and Minhyahil Teshome Beyene, redeemed himself by scoring the decisive and crucial goal.
Asrat Megersa scored Ethiopia’s goal during the first leg match.
EthioSports would like to congratulate the Ethiopian national team players and coaching staff for a great result!
