Just after the signing of two players from the Swedish Premier league, in
the city of the Hague where the 1998 border issue between Eritrea and
Ethiopia was solved another teenager (17 years old) Eritrean player has
emerged. Hennos Asmelash and his family along with a new team mate dotted

Dutch premiere league team ADO Den Haag. The club currently sits in the
15th place spot and must remain in the same spot if it wants to remain in
the Eredivise (Premier Dutch league).
Hennos Asmelash who is a strong defender has been a part of the Under 19
ADO Den Haag team, until recently when he got the call from the senior
squad. He got in the as a substitute on January 14 in an away match against

Meanwhile see the youtube link below for a story on Hennos and his new team
mate as they sign their contract with their families present.
Tesfalidet Tekie is a very gifted player and at 19 years old his contract

soccer left in him and Golgol Mebrahtu who has made his way to Europe from
Australia. Then we arrive at Hennos Asmelash who has been playing in the
youth teams of his current club and even represented the Orange crush
(Dutch) national side by performing well on the youth national teams.
