Ethiopia's inexperience showed but again, we're building for the future and we're proud to have a truly national team that is full of homegrown, non-Euros players. Europe is swallowing talent like the NBA, and it is just as ridiculous as the American team in the Olympics ( I mean seriously, is allowing all the uber-athletes of the world to naturalize and essentially become the World All-Sport All-Star team even count?)..
I applaud Ethiopia for even being able to compete and make it for the first time in more than 30 years. As a nation, so much has happened since then, and the future is so much brighter for the first time in a long time. Its nice that football is one of those bright spots, especially as the rest of the world finally catches up with our distance running game
