PSL

Starting XI: Libya v Ethiopia

African Nations Championship

Teams: Libya v Ethiopia

Date: 13 January 2013

Venue: Free State Stadium

Libya will be looking to put in a better performance than their first time in 2009 when they failed to make it past the group stages and pick up a win against debutants Ethiopia in their Group C clash at the Free State Stadium kicking-off at 20:00.

The Mediterranean Knights automatically qualified for this year’s tournament when their opponents Algeria withdrew from the competition after failing to qualify in 2011 when they were eliminated by Nigeria.

Ethiopia will be making their first appearance at the African Nations Championship after they defeated Rwanda 6-5 on penalties in the qualifiers to enter the round of 16 after the two legged tie was deadlocked at 1-1.

Sewnet Bishaw’s side are currently ranked 93 in the FIFA ranking table and were on the brink of qualifying for the 2014 Fifa World Cup before they were knocked out by Nigeria.

Here’s how they line-up:

Libya: El Mutasem Abushnaf, Ahmed Al Alwany, Abd Selam Al Fitouri, Mohamed Ali Al Gabsi, Mohamed Al Ghanodi, Moaied Abdeslam Al Gritly, Ahmed Mohamed Al Maghasi, Muataz Fadel Al Mahdi, Ali Mohamed Al Musrati, Mohamed El Hnaish El Gadi, Ali Taher El Hadi

Ethiopia: Butako Bune Abebaw, Dereje Genet Alemu, Tariku Getnet Alemu, Fasika Gebregiorgis Asfaw, Ephrem Melore Ashamo, Behailu Assefa, Hailu Reda Aynalem, Saladin Bargecho, Berhanu Bogale, Degu Debede, Biyadiglign Elyaszewg
