The Black Starlets of Ghana booked their place in the last 16 of the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup after thrashing hosts India 4-0 on Thursday.

Skipper Eric Ayiah completed his brace by scoring either side of halftime before substitutes Richard Danso and Emmanuel Toku capped a dominant display with goals of their own after they both came off the bench.

The result means Ghana will progress to the next round as Group winners after USA were stunned 3-1 by Colombia in the other Group A clash.

Ayiah first breached the Indian resistance in the 43rd minute when he struck from close range with an improvised and shortly after the break in the 52nd minute he smashed home a low shot to double the Starlets tally.

Danso converted past the onrushing Indian goalie in the 86 minute to make the score 3-0 before Emmanuel Toku fired home the fourth a minute later when he was left unmarked in the box.
