Ethiopian referees take positive strides

Selected to officiate continental tournaments, Ethiopian referees had a successful year. Beamlak Temesgen, Lidia Tafesse and Temesgin Samuel were the chosen three, as they made their way to their respective venues to officiate matches.

During the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt, referee Beamlak was given the opportunity to officiate four matches, while Temsgin was listed as an assistant referee. Lidia Tafesse was also able to take positive strides, as she was selected to officiate in the 2019 Women World Cup held in France.

Furthermore, Beamlak has managed to successfully officiate the AFCON semi-final game between Tunisia and Senegal. It can be recalled that he has also featured in the 2018 Russia World Cup as an assistant. Temesgin was also the fourth official in the AFCON tournament.

Meanwhile, Lidia was in charge of the match between Scotland and Japan in the 2019 Women World Cup.
