Mmegi Online :: Zebras hopes fade in Ethiopia








The Ethiopia tie was a must-win for the Zebras to keep their qualification hopes alive but it was not to be as Getaneh Kedebe scored for the home side in the 90th minute. The loss leaves the Zebras stuck at the bottom of group A with a single point from three matches after a lose to Central Africa Republic (CAR) and a draw with South Africa.

Against Ethiopia, coach Stanley Tshosane started with almost the same line up that he fielded against Malawi last Tuesday, save for striker Jerome Ramatlhakwane who replaced the injured Kekaetswe Moloi.  Ramatlhakwane was the target man with Moemedi Moatlhaping playing as a second striker. The host enjoyed greater possession and troubled goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe a number of times. The Zebras absorbed the pressure throughout the first half for a 0-0 score.  It looked like the game was headed for a 0-0 draw Kedebe struck at the death.

With three matches remaining, the Zebras chances of progressing to the next round are very slim  taking into account that Ethiopia now tops the group with seven points. South Africa, who beat CAR at home are now second with five points. The Zebras can only get a maximum of 10 points if they win all the remaining matches, an almost impossible task. Only the winners in the 10 groups of the Africa qualifiers proceed to the knock-out second round stage. The winners of the five home-and-away ties advance to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.
