Ethiopia qualified ahead of Sudan.


Ethiopia on Sunday qualified for its first African Cup of Nations in 30 years with a 2-0 home win over Sudan.

Adane Girma and Saladine Said scored the first and second goals in the 61st and 64th respectively.

It will be the first time Ethiopia will be making an appearance at the AFCON since 1982 due to a series of withdrawals and failure to qualify for the tournament.

The Black Lions of Ethiopia will now participate in South Africa 2013 AFCON and the draws coming up on the 24th of this month in Durban will determine the group they will play in.
