Everton beat Austrian minnows ATV Irdning 22-0 in Marco Silva’s first game in charge


The Toffees thrashed the Austrian fifth division side as part of their pre-season preparations

Pre-season is meant to be gruelling; a brutal introduction back into the demands of first team football.

Suffice to safe, Everton will have enjoyed their first game under Marco Silva, in what will undoubtedly be one of the easiest games they ever play.

The Toffees piled on the goals in their pre-season friendly away to Austrian side ATV Irdning, winning 22-0.

Kevin Mirallas led the way with five goals, with four apiece for Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse and a hat-trick from Ademola Lookman in a game which descended into farce.

Silva will be hoping the rest of his tenure at Goodison Park is this easy

Everton’s 19th goal was a bizarre 25-yard own goal before the 20th came when the home keeper turned his back on Nikola Vlasic’s shot, one of two goals for the Croatian winger.

Defenders Michael Keane, Leighton Baines and Mason Holgate were the Toffees’ other scorers.
