Addis Ababa Niger and Ethiopia drew 1-1 in a soccer friendly match played here today as part of the two teams’ preparations to the upcoming CHAN competition, which will be held in Rwanda from January 16 to February 7.

It was the visitors who opened the score thanks to Idrissa Halidou Garba just 8 minutes into the game and Ethiopian fans had to wait until the 89th minute to see Gatoch Panom convert a dubious penalty kick. Niger’s players vehemently protested the referee’s decision but to no avail.

Following the penalty kick, Ethiopia had an opportunity to win the match but Mulualem hit the crossbar.
