Super Eagles set for Ethiopia friendly

02 January 2014, 11:04Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Super Eagles are set to take on the Walya Antelopes in a friendly before the commencement of the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa.

The game is scheduled for Saturday inside the mainbowl of the national stadium in Abuja.

Both teams will take part in the CHAN tournament taking place over three weeks in three cities in the Rainbow Nation, and exclusively for senior professionals playing in the domestic league of their countries.

The Ethiopian squad play in Group C of the competition alongside Ghana, Congo and Libya in Mangaung, while Nigeria’s Eagles confront host South Africa, Mali and Mozambique in Cape Town.

Group B features Zimbabwe, Morocco, Burkina Faso and Uganda, while Democratic Republic of Congo, champions of the inaugural tournament in 2009, head Group D that also includes Mauritania, Gabon and Burundi.

Ethiopia got the short end of the stick against Nigeria’s A Team in their African final elimination fixture for the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, losing home and away 1-4 on aggregate.
