What Was Said?
Ethiopian head coach Wubetu Abate on their reason for arriving so early for the tournament said: “It’s true that it’s too early to arrive in Cameroon but not very early for a preparation, beaus you know some teams have started their preparation one or two days before, we are here, so we will start our training sessions today”.
The Ethiopian team consists of majorly, local players and the head coach has affirmed that he’s confident that they shall provide the needed result.
He said: “It’s a young team, most of them play at home in the local league, and we have two players who play away. So if we have young players it shows that there will be energy, there is motivation to play and I think that is the most important thing.”
