Kotoko knocked out of CAF Confederation Cup

Asante Kotoko have crashed out of the Caf Confederation Cup at the group stage after they were defeated by Zesco United on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors, who needed a win to qualify for the quarterfinals, threw away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to the Zambian side in Ndola.

Kotoko stunned the host when they opened the scoring in the 46th minute through substitute Stephen Nkarkoi.

However, the lead lasted for eight minutes as Jesse Were restored parity with a close-range effort.

Two minutes later, Kondwani Mtonga scored to make it 2-1 for the Zesco and the Zambians held on to ensure that they finished the competition on a winning note.
