Kotoko defender Eric Donkor is unhappy with his side’s elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup.

A 7-6 penalty loss to Congolese Club CARA Brazzaville saw the Porcupine Warriors crashing out of the competition.

Kotoko failed to protect their 1-0 first leg advantage as they conceded to take the game to penalty shootouts.

Misses from captain Amos Frimpong, Obed Owusu, Jackson Owusu and Kwame Boahene cost Kotoko a place in the first round of the competition.

Donkor who could not last the game after sustaining a knock is gutted by the team’s exit from Africa’s inter-club competition.

Kotoko have now failed to progress past the second phase in their last three editions in continental football.
