Afcon Qualifiers: The Walias Coach Names Squad to Face Malawi

ADDIS ABABA – The Walias interim head coach Daniel Gebremariam has made a call for twenty-three players for the African Cup of Nations 2023 qualifier this month.

The squad will camp in Adama to prepare for the final round of the match against Malawi beginning Monday.

It will be Daniel’s first match in charge of the Walias after his appointment as interim coach on May 15, 2023.

He replaced Wubetu Abate who departed following a back-to-back defeat to Guinea in the 2023 Afcon qualifiers.

The results left Ethiopia at the bottom of Group D with three points and the fate of qualifications out of their hands. 

The Walias will now play host against Malawi in Mozambique on June 20 before a final group G match against Egypt in Cairo.

Both matches will just be formalities for Daniel’s team if Guinea and Egypt, group leaders with nine points each, manage to draw when they meet on June 14.  

Both teams need a point to qualify for Africa’s biggest football spectacle in Cote d’Ivoire next year.
