Ghana defeated Burundi 2-1 in the opening Group game of the 2019 Africa Games in Morroco.
Attacking midfielder Tahiru Awudu bagged a brace to help the Black Satellites record their first victory in the tournament.
The win also puts Ghana in good position to qualify out of the group.
The Black Satellites will next face 2019 Africa U20 Cup of Nations finalist Senegal on Wednesday.
Ghana last won the Africa Games in 2011 when they defeated South Africa in the finals.
