Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure believes it will be a tall order for his former side to progress in the Confederations Cup after holding out a slim 1-0 advantage ahead of their second leg game against CARA in a fortnight.

Toure, who now plies his trade in Ivory Coast with Asec Mimosa believes it will be difficult for the Porcupine Warriors to advance to the next phase of the competition.

"It will be very difficult for Asante Kotoko to qualify for the next stage of the competition but I pray they achieve it by qualifying," he concluded.

Kotoko could have made the tie easier by winning by a huge margin but the Porcupines missed three penalties and now have to give their all in two weeks time.
