TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY JENNY VAUGHAN Ethiopian football players stretch during a training session on January 10, 2013 in Addis Ababa ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. They may be smaller than the Nigerians, slower than the Zambians and have fewer professional players than most rivals, but Ethiopia are committed to excelling at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. It is the first time the Horn of Africa squad has qualified for the pan-African tournament in 31 years, and though the odds might be stacked against them, the Walias Antelopes -- named after an endangered antelope endemic to Ethiopia's northern mountains -- are confident they will defy expectations and proceed to the knock-out stage of the tournament.
