The football dream is over for Ethiopia, who had managed to make it to the semi-finals of the cup competition. Unfortunately Ethiopia (ranked 131 in the world out of 203 teams) were up against Ivory Coast (ranked 19). Despite not having their famous players available Cote d’Ivoire still won 1-0. A lot of the academic staff members missed the game-of-the-year due to a meeting, but not many were surprised when they came out later to hear the result. Oh well, there’s always the 3rd place play-off against Uganda on Sunday to play for, just before the final between Ivory Coast and Tanzania.
