In the end, Wolaitta won by 4 – 3 to progress. A feat the country’s football federation chief described as a ‘historic victory.’

“Wolaitta Dicha beat the Egyptian giants Zamalek 4-3 on penalties to progress to the next round in CAF Confederation Cup. Congratulations on this historic victory! We’re proud!” Juneidi Basha wrote on Twitter.

Even as the players celebrated in faraway Egypt, back home in the town of Hawassa in southern Ethiopia, fans thronged the streets in jubilation.

Wolaitta Dicha are the first Ethiopian side to eliminate Zamalek from a CAF club competition. Mekelakeya, Ethiopia Bunna and Kidus Giorgis all tried to achieve the feat but were unsuccessful. Based in the town of Sodo, Woldiatta will face a team that is demoted to the Confederations Cup from the Champions League in the last qualifying round.

The draw will take place in Cairo coming Wednesday. Ethiopia will be having only one representative in the second tier CAF club tourney after KCCA of Uganda beat Kids Giorgis in the last qualifying round of the CAF Champions League.

Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
