International career[edit]

Ouattara gained his first cap for Burkina Faso in 2003, and was a member of the national team at the 2004 African Nations Cup, as it finished bottom of its group in the first round, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarter-finals.

He also represented the nation at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship, as it finished atop in group stage, before bowing out in the round of 16.
