Welcome to Day 3 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.
Isaac Price spoke to Everton TV about his first senior start for the Blues:
“I found out I was starting in a team meeting on the morning of the game and I was buzzing. Having senior players around me helped a lot. All the back three behind me were always talking to me and having Abdoulaye [Doucoure] next to me gave me confidence, let me play more, and I thought we played pretty well.” [EFC]

Frank Lampard has spoken about his connection with England phenom Jude Bellingham:
“He’s crucial for England - an outstanding talent. He’s more experienced and talented than his years show - to do what he’s done at the top level already. I tried to sign him when I was at Chelsea actually – unfortunately it didn’t happen but I wanted to sign him and Declan Rice.” [DailyMail]

Kudos to former Evertonian Gary Lineker for saying what needs to be said.
This is how BBC opened coverage of World Cup 2022. Stark contrast to Fox Coverage in United States. Please take a minute to watch. This is how this World Cup should be contextualized pic.twitter.com/36HtKOX26w— roger bennett (@rogbennett) November 20, 2022
