Ethiopia's football federation have dismissed national coach Jochen Figge.

Figge, who took up the job in August 2002, had been charged with taking the team to the 2004 Nations Cup in Tunisia.

The German coach will be replaced by Asrat Haile.

Despite being second in their African Nations Cup qualifying group, which includes Guinea, Liberia and Niger, Figge was dismissed for "failing to provide the documents" needed to support his application for the post.
