Adane is a midfielder and Striker and is part of the Ethiopia national football team. He began his career with Awassa City FC in summer 2007, then left the team and moved to Saint-George SA. He was later transformed to striker, a role in which he did very well by being one of the best scorers of the Ethiopian Premier League in season 2009/10. He can also play at full-back. Adane Girma and Getaneh Kebede of Dedebit FC shared the Ethiopian Premier League 2010/11 goal scoring title after they finished the season with 20 goals each. He was also awarded as best player of the league in that season.

Adane was named to the Ethiopian squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.[1][2] He scored the equalizer in team Ethiopia's first match against Zambia in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, in Nelspruit, South Africa.[3]

Adane picked an injury in the early minutes of the match against Burkina faso and left the pitch on tear.

First African cup of nations

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 would convert to a magnificent low corner goal.
