Everton win farcical pre-season friendly 22-0

Frustrated goalkeeper simply leaves goal open during a 22-0 loss to Everton

Frustrated goalkeeper simply leaves goal open during a 22-0 loss to Everton

Everton have broken 133 years recorded with their pre-season ruthless 22-0 hammering of Austrian Landesliga club ATV Irdning on Saturday afternoon. And no, that is not a typo.

The Toffees only managed 16 goals away from home last season in the Premier League but stormed past that number in a single fixture against their improbably over-matched hosts in Austria.

Kevin Mirallas bagged five goals in the rout, Cenk Tosun netted four, as did Oumar Niasse, Ademola Lookman scored a hat-trick, Nikola Vlasic chipped in with a brace, while Michael Keane, Mason Holgate and Leighton Baines also got themselves on the scoresheet. But more on that later.

The Toffees led 6-0 against Austrian side ATV Irdning after just 17 minutes and 10-0 at half-time, with 12 further goals coming after the break despite a raft of changes. With the score at 19-0 and nine minutes left to play, Irdning player Sebastian Schmidt attempted to pass the ball back to his goalkeeper and failed pretty miserably.

Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus announced that they would no longer sell the first daughter's clothing and accessories past year . In February a year ago , the USA fashion chain Nordstrom said it had dropped Ivanka Trump´s line of shoes and clothing.

Everton surely wouldn't have learned anything from today's match.

You wouldn't even see that sort of nonsense happen on Federation Internationale de Football Association, for crying out loud.

Silva's side return to the United Kingdom to face Bury on Wednesday and will expect a tougher test than they were given by a team who play at the fifth level of Austrian football.

Everton face Bury on Wednesday in their next preseason game.
