Asante Kotoko lost 7-6 on penalties in Brazzaville to CARA to exit the CAF Confederation Cup  on Thursday. The match ended 1-0 after regulation time and that tied the match 1-1 on aggregate.

In the shootout, Kotoko goalie, Felix Annan, was the first play to take a kick and he managed to score. He went on to save the first kick from CARA.

Awudu Nafiu, Yakubu Mohammed, and Wahab Adams all found the net to send the shootout into sudden death where Jordan Opoku and Baba Mahama had success from the spot.

However, Obed Owusu, Amos Frimpong, Owusu Jackson and Kwame Boahene missed their kicks at different times in the shootout to hand the Congolese victory.

CARA will now face Ben Guerdane of Tunisia in the second round of the qualifiers.
