Ethiopia book place in next round of World Cup 2022 qualifiers

Ethiopia in next round of Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 - Sports Leo

Ethiopia booked their place at the next round of the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 after an away 1-1 draw against Lesotho in Maseru on Sunday.

They advanced on the away-goal rule after a 1-1 tie on aggregate.

A goalless draw in the first leg in Bahir Dar last week gave Lesotho a huge boost; however, it was Ethiopia who had the last laugh by securing a place at the second step of the continental journey to Qatar.

After a barren first-half, Ethiopia went up on 50 minutes when a cross by Mesfin Tafesse deflected off Nkau Lerotholi for the opener.

Seven minutes later, a free-kick by Tsepo Seturumane glanced off Tafesse and into the net for the equaliser.

Ethiopia held on to the stalemate and now go through to the next round.
