Welcome to Day 2 of the 2022 World Cup!
With Premier League action halted for the global showcase, we’re going to pivot to covering the World Cup for the next month or so, with an Everton focus. The Blues are on their tour to Australia so we’ll continue with coverage on that, but we’re also going to have all the viewing information you will need for the tournament in Qatar on a daily basis, with in-depth coverage on some teams of interest - England, Belgium, Senegal, United States and Canada.
Everton great Enner Valencia scored both goals for Ecuador in their 2-0 win against Qatar yesterday.

“I think it’s important for the team to realise that last week was just a once-off week in what has been a reasonably good start to the season. We’ve got to start putting the building blocks back in place to start performing well again once we get back to the Premier League. It was a tough week last week, but we’re looking forward to getting back after this break and getting back to business,” says James Tarkowski. [ABC Sport]

“I was really close to joining Everton. I thought it was a good project for me and I felt I should try it. It wasn’t like this season was my first, it was my third. So if I’m not getting the progress I’m looking for then why not try something else? That was the focus of everything that happened. I spoke to Lampard [regarding a move to Everton]. I had a chat with him to know the project they have for me, what he thinks about me and how he sees me as a player because definitely that would be the green light for me to decide whether I want to move. Without the coach there is nothing,” says Mohammed Kudus. [Joy Online]
