The Porcupine Warriors had a perfect start to the game with Osman Ibrahim handing the Kumasi club the lead with less than 10 minutes played.
However, Hemeya Tanjy hit back for the hosts from the spot after Yusif Mubarik was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the 18-yard-box.
This had fans torn in opinions, with many stating the penalty awarded to Nouadhibou was a wrong call and unfair on Kotoko.
Clear penalty, it’s hit the arm
