Nigeria didn't deserve to qualify for the world cup, FIFA assisted them – Ethiopia Coach



The Ethiopia coach Sewnet  Bishaw, who was relinquished of his duties with the Ethiopian
national team following their failure to qualify, believes FIFA
played a huge role in the side’s shortcomings, accusing them of
“bringing the game into disrepute”.
“FIFA didn’t want us (Ethiopia) to qualify (for the World Cup)
because who knows Ethiopian football and who wants us to qualify
when we were playing against the current African Champions,” the
coach told Football411 in an  interview.
“We played our hearts out and we wanted to win and qualify for the
World Cup but FIFA didn’t like that. They awarded penalties for
them (Nigeria) which were never penalties, and these things happens
because FIFA wants them to qualify for the World Cup.
“It was a shame for Ethiopian football because we fought from the
(first) blast of the whistle to the end. For me, Nigeria didn’t deserve to
qualify because they were aided by FIFA, which is not good for the
game of football.”
It could be recalled that Nigeria defeated the Antelopes both home and away,2-1 and 2-0 respectively .
