Now the entire dream come true and the national party coming to end, what must be done in time for the cup final showdown in South Africa in three months time is the big question on the table. Yes we broke the 31 year old tradition and book a flight to the host nation South Africa to be among the nations’ sixteen football heavy weights. Qualification to the cup final by itself does not mean the ultimate goal for Ethiopian football. Rather an opportunity to awaken the nation’s football passion and capitalize on it the future. The record shows the last time Ethiopia appears in the cup final was 31 years back in Libya and finished eighth out of eight participating nations. Considering the qualification campaign lady luck had been with Ethiopia facing Somalia in the preliminary round then a clash against little known football nation Benin followed by the decisive showdown against Sudan yet the final leg in Addis Ababa in front of home supporters. That is football its final out coma open for more than fifty percent to chances. The strongest side in the planet could miss so many goal chances some rebounded from goal posts and lose for the average side with one goal from a spot kick. That is football and the same all over the world.
Having that in mind Ethiopian Football Federation should tighten its belt from now on to look for ways to build a better and stronger national side if not title contender at least seriously competent. The likes of the continent’s football giants Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria teams boasting world renowned foreign based players may be in their own exclusive party but what about the humble ones like Zambia, the defending champions. The next target must be to go through the group stage however strong our adversaries might be and to that end the federation must work hard.
Keeping close relationship with premier league sides head coaches so that to set-up some road map for the national team, looking all over the globe for players with Ethiopian blood tie, looking for new and better ones among local players, earlier call of the players in to camp and look for few international friendly matches are of the few to mention what the team must focus on.
