Two goals by striker Daniel Agbloe Lomotey in each half gave Ghana all three points in their opening game at the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations underway in Niger.
The game against Burkina Faso had been delayed from Sunday due to a technical fault with the floodlights.
On Monday, when it was finally cleared to be played at the State de Maridi, the Black Satellites made the most of their attack, with 16 shots – six on target.
WAFA’s Lomotey led the attack, become a predator to the Burkinabe defence.
His first goal came in the 40th minute when he lobbed a goalkeeper Nurudeen Manaf long cross over the Burkinabe goalie.
His second came a few minutes to regulation time.
Jimmy Cobbina’s side will next play Senegal, who picked all three points against Mali on Sunday.
