Abraham promises bridge over dry land


With three goals four yellow cards and the winning goal in the dying minute, national boss Abraham Mebratu’s squad struggled to get past its lowly adversary visiting Djibouti. After an aggregate 5-3 score line Ethiopia got through the preliminary round qualification facing Rwanda early September in a home encounter.
Djibouti was almost to grab an international victory had it not been for that frustrating winning goal miss ten minutes before the final whistle. Abraham has neither an answer nor any footballing explanation for the near chaotic performance of his side. Thanks to the negligent Ethiopian Football Federation, he could not play in front of home supporters. Still Abraham has no one but himself to blame for not having a good enough squad even in a match against Djibouti.
“We performed below expectations because of our lack of concentration. We are going to work hard to take home advantage and get better prepared for the 2020 CHAN cup final qualification” Ever charming Abrahm suggested. The problem is that he never has fresh ideas and always whispering beautiful words rather than suggesting what to be done in footballing languages. ” He is just like his predecessors always talking about morale, lack of concentration, huge ambition, and inspiration,” Mesfin Shibeshi remarked. “It is hard to blame him for he has no firsthand knowledge of football, Mesfin added.
“He told us everything but nothing about the real challenges his team faces. He is a politician promising a bridge where there is no river in his most disarming way,” a player said.
