Ghanaian youngster Isaac Atanga scored to help FC Nordsjælland make a winning start to the new Danish Superliga season.

Atanga, who was promoted to the first team in April, netted against Horsens as Nordsjælland sealed a comfortable 3-0 victory on Sunday.

Ulrik Yttergard had opened the scoring in the first half after receiving a pass from Ghanaian forward Godsway Donyoh, who was voted man of the match.

The 18-year-old doubled the lead in the 58th minute. His goal was assisted by compatriot Abu Francis.

Abu was played in one-on-one with Horsens goalkeeper and he unselfishly squared the ball for Atanga to tap home into an empty net.

The two are former players of Right to Dream Academy.

Mathias Rasmussen wrapped up the win with the third goal in the 84th minute.

Aside Atanga Abu and Donyoh, centre-back Abdul Mumin also featured for Nordsjælland.
