The ‘signing’ of Rooney doesn’t stop Everton’s defeat to Villarreal

first_img Villarreal and Everton played in a very tight first half, in which both teams didn’t want to give anything away despite it being a friendly. When both sides made changes, chances came as a result. 02/08/2015 The second half started in the same fashion, with Villarreal set up well and unwilling to give their opponents any joy. In addition, the Spanish side began to threaten Tim Howard’s goal more regularly. An impressive Villarreal defeated Everton 2-1 in a game played in tribute to Duncan Ferguson, in which the Spanish club showed themselves to be better than their rivals, with this especially the case in the second half. Due to this, Villarreal went on to score through Nahuel, making the most of an assist after being put through against the goalkeeper. The second goal was evidence of the superiority of the Yellow Submarine, with Nahuel also having the chance to score a third, but for a save from Howard. Gerard Moreno and Leo Baptistao stood out for Villarreal, counteracting the efforts of Mirallas for Everton. In a game that was very balanced and low on chances, only dead ball situations could find a goal. CEST Upd. at 19:52 EFE On 37 minutes it was Gerard Moreno who converted a goal from a corner that had been touched by Baptistao, the first of the game. Once again, Villarreal made the most of the chances that were afforded to them while on their tour in England, where they have worked well as a group. Marcelino’s men continued to control the game, approach the opposition penalty area and create opportunities. Ivan Alejo also went through one-on-one with Howard. Changes then came, allowing for some chances and a goal for the hosts, which excited their fans in the dying embers of the game.last_img read more

Mourinho’s reaction to Fellaini’s winner. You and us all Jose, mate.— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) 27 de noviembre de 2018center_img “Reaching the next round is a feat for us. There are better teams, teams with more quality and ambition, but when a team reaches the knockout rounds, anything can happen.” “It was a gesture of relief and frustration,” the coach explained. “Our performance wasn’t a 0-0. It wasn’t a game to have problems until the last minute. I wasn’t angry with the players, I was frustrated not to score before.   “My players were really tired at the end and that’s what we wanted: it means they gave everything. There were moments of good football, but there were also moments with a lack of confidence and pressure, but we got the goal.” “Never one of my teams stayed in the group phase.
