Everton slump to draw against 10-man Apollon Limassol



Europa League, Goodison Park - Everton 2 (Rooney 21, Vlasic 66) Apollon Limassol 2 (Sardinero 12, Yuste 88).

Everton slumped to a 2-2 draw against 10-man Appollon Limassol at Goodison Park in what is a huge blow to their Europa League hopes.
The Toffees conceded early after an Ashley Williams mistake let in Adrian Sardinero, who scored the late equaliser in the game against Lyon, to slot home at the second attempt following a good save from Jordan Pickford.
However Everton drew level thanks to Wayne Rooney in the 21st minute after another defensive error – this time from Hector Yuste whose terrible back-pass caught his goalkeeper unaware and left the former England captain with an empty net.

Teenager Nikola Vlasic scored his first Everton goal having come on at half-time to give Ronald Koeman’s side the lead with a cool finish before Valentin Roberge was sent off late on for a nasty stamp on another substitute, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
But the Cypriots were not finished and Yuste made up for his earlier error with a headed goal two minutes from time.
It means Everton remain bottom in Group E after their 3-0 defeat against Atalanta two weeks ago.
