World Cup 2014: Ethiopia 1-2 Nigeria
By Piers Edwards

Last updated on 13 October 2013



Nigeria survived a scare in Addis Ababa as the African champions rallied to beat Ethiopia 2-1 in the opening leg of their World Cup play-off.

The hosts were the superior team for the first hour and led after 56 minutes as Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama misjudged a cross from Behailu Assefa.

Nigeria, who were not at their best, equalised through Emmanuel Emenike's ferocious drive after 67 minutes.

Emenike then won and scored a penalty late on to secure the win.

The match was in the 90th minute when Aynalem Hailu needlessly brought the Nigerian down, allowing the Turkey-based striker to coolly slot home a decisive goal.

"Ethiopia's play scared us in the first half but we showed why we are the African champions in the second half - that's what makes the difference," assistant coach Daniel Amokachi told BBC Sport.

Bidding to qualify for their fifth World Cup in six attempts, Stephen Keshi's side grew stronger as the game wore on and could have led after 77 minutes as Ahmed Musa thumped a close-range strike against the inside of the post.

Defeat was cruel on Ethiopia coach Sewnet Bishaw, who impressed with their technical play but lacked a cutting edge in the final third.

Trying to become the first East African nation to appear at a World Cup, the Walya Antelopes thought they had opened the scoring after 24 minutes through Saladin Said.

The forward controlled a long diagonal ball well and managed to beat Enyeama only to see Gofrey Oboabona clear off the line, with many inside a packed Addis Ababa Stadium - Said included - believing a goal had been scored.

When Ethiopia did make the breakthrough it came in similar style as Enyeama was slow to react to a left-wing cross from Assefa, leaving himself badly positioned as he caught the ball behind the line.

The visitors, for whom Nnamdi Oduamadi had missed a good chance in the first half, had an early opportunity to draw level only for some smart goalkeeping from Jemal Tassew to deny Victor Moses.

The Super Eagles did not have to wait long for their equaliser, however, as Emenike took possession 30 yards out before drifting forward and rifling home a blistering strike.

The goal took the wind out of the hosts's sails and they were fortunate to survive when Musa got behind the defence and hit the post with Tassew beaten.

Ethiopia substitute Addis Hintsa missed two presentable chances in the dying minutes, as the match looked set to end in a draw.

While that may have been a fairer reflection on the game, Emenike had other ideas, piling into the box and forcing a rash challenge from Hailu, who clearly tugged the Nigerian's arm.

Emenike's second goal of the game completed a smash-and-grab win and ensured that Nigeria are favourites to progress to their second straight World Cup when the two sides meet again in Calabar on 16 November.

Thanks for this.
I remember the game very well, and the return leg which got us qualification for the WC 2014. Both games were very difficult. Keshi stated after, “the boys were nervous”.

This is the game thread:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=240611&hilit=Ethiopia&start=759
Game ended on p35 and the typical Naija ‘analysis’ starts from there.

Notice how - quite predictably - Nigerians criticized Keshi and the team for “playing poorly”.
Funny thing is, many of those that defended him then are the ones beefing Rohr for the very same thing after securing an even better away result vs CV.

:rotf: :rotf: :rotf:
Also that Ethiopian team was better than this CV team actually took the game to us with high pressure and we also had issues with the altitude, I remember a tireless runner like Onazi slumped over after 10 or so minutes. I think they had gotten results/wins against other teams in our group at home thanks to their altitude advantage.

if memory serves me right, was this not the game we arrived late and didn't acclimatize to the high altitude?

The ball crossed the goal line by just margins; thanks to some acrobatic defending by Oboabona I believe who cleared it.


But yeah, this one was definitely a goal, ball had already crossed the goal line mid air before it even landed or kicked away by the CV Goal keeper, very weird goal nonetheless.
In that game, Enyeama with all his experience seriously misjudged the flight of the ball and the rest is history. Being beaten at your near post is not as criminal as losing your GPS as a GK.
BUT THESE THINGS HAPPEN TO THE VERY BEST.

I don’t seem to remember the Oboabona clearance though.
We also never got a conclusive video showing that ball had actually crossed the line…
I think those were the days just prior to goal line technology and there were probably not enough cameras strategically placed around the stadium to give us a good angle.

No and no...this was the first leg of the playoffs. We won both legs and qualified to Brazil..Ghana also destroyed Egypt 6 goals to 1 in another playoff. Also that wasn't a goal. The entire ball has to cross the line. Enyeama was cheated there

Nah it did, every unbiased mind knows that ball crossed the line... even VAR in all its inconsistencies wouldn't have missed that, truth is we were very lucky to have earned that 3 pts in Ethiopia considering how we were comprehensively outplayed.

I don't mind people questioning Rohrs football including me who has been his biggest critic, but hindsight is always the best perspective to keep reality in check... truth is, when last have we ever played really entertaining brand of football especially in crucial away games? even our '94 golden generation struggled against minnows (the facts are there).

I am yet to see the use of goal line technology to confirm either goal. For me, they both remain unconfirmed!
