The Black Satellites defeated Burundi 2-1 in their opening game of the 2019 All African games ongoing in Morocco.

A first half brace from forward Tahiru Awudu was all Yaw Preko's boys need to kick start their tournament on a winning note.

The other group B opponents Mali & Senegal settle for a goalless drawn game in the earlier game.

Black Satellites will next play Senegal on Wednesday.
