The Ethiopia Football Association (EFA) General Secretary, Meskerem Goshime has confirmed that the Walia Ibex are scheduled to play Zambia international friendly.
The game is billed for Saturday at newly renovated Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka.
“Yes they they secured it. We will be playing a friendly with Zambia, ” she said.
Both Zambia and Ethiopia are using this friendly as a preparation for their African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier final round of qualifier matches against South Africa and Sudan respectively.
Zambia beat Swaziland 7-0 on aggregate to qualify to the final round in the Southern Zone while Ethiopia marched on after Djibouti’s withdraw of their second leg–in the Central East Zone of CHAN qualifiers.
Earlier this year, the EFA had secured a friendly match with Zambia, which was supposed to be played last month. However, FAZ decided not go ahead with it.
