Coach of Ethiopia, Sewnet Bissaw, has tasked his side to go into their final Group C game with Nigeria with a lot of hunger, so they can stand a chance of qualifying for the quarter finals of AFCON 2013.
The Walya Antelopes were beaten 4-0 by 10-man Burkina Faso on Friday, a result that leaves them with just one point.
“We didn’t expect this result from the very beginning. We hoped that we would play again like the first game and take a point against Burkina Faso,” Bissaw said.
There is a mathematical possibility that the Antelopes will qualify, if results go their way onn Tuesday and Bissaw says his team will go all out.
He said: “We’re not going to the field to defend, because defending will only give you one point. Now we must try to play against Nigeria to score goals to have three points.
“Maybe if we have three points, totally we will have four points, and we may qualify to the next stage.
“Not only will we just score one or two goals, we need to score lots of goals also, otherwise, it is a matter of dignity and to maintain the level of football of our boys.”
