FIFA cancels Ethiopia World Cup

August 30, 2008

“FIFA today confirmed that the match is cancelled due to the current suspension of the Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) from international football,” FIFA said in a statement.

FIFA said that the World Cup organising committee would meet on an unspecified date to decide what effect the cancelled game would have on the situation in Ethiopia’s qualifying group.

Ethiopia are currently third in the four-man group which also includes Rwanda and Mauritania.
