In a few hours, Everton officially kick off their preseason with a match against Gor Mahia in Tanzania on the east coast of Africa. So far, it has seemed like a pretty incredible trip for the boys in blue. They have made a noticeable impact and Yannick Bolasie, a Congolese international, looks like a super hero. Good luck today, Toffees!
