Everton are back in action. It doesn’t count and, if you’re outside of Africa, the match can only be found on the Toffees' own streaming service, but it’s real, live football. The team is taking a whole slew of players to Africa, so expect to see most of the new faces get significant action.
What else is there to say? It’s a preseason game. We will all overreact to every negative and positive that comes out of it. But in reality, none of it will matter too much. Just make sure everyone makes it back to Finch Farm in one piece.
