Adane Girma was a key player for the national team during the qualification of the 2013 African Cup of Nations. On his first appearance of African Cup of Nations, Adane played at central midfielder position in place of another sensational young midfielder Addis Hintsa. Because of the more cautious approach to the first match against 2012 Champions Zambia, the Coach chose to play Adane in the central position, leaving Addis Hintsa on the bench. With great skill and short passing, Adane managed to lead the team to a draw. His team played with only 10-man for more than 70 minutes of the match. Shortly after the introduction of Addis Hintsa, Adane played in a more in attacking position. On the 65th minute, Adane would receive a great pass from the striker Saladin Said which he converted it to a magnificent low corner goal.
