31 Jul

But the England defender, valued at £50m, couldn’t stop Ronald Koeman’s side finishing bottom of the four-team tournament.

After losing 2-1 to hosts Dinamo Dresden on Friday night, a completely changed Everton line-up were held 1-1 by Spanish top-flight side Real Betis yesterday.

With Romelu Lukaku, Gareth Barry, James McCarthy, Mo Besic, Tom Cleverley and Arouna Kone joining some of the squad’s younger players in the starting line-up, Everton led after only 13 minutes when a Cleverley corner bounced off defender Aissa Mandi and trickled in.
