Everton U21s 4 - 2 AS Monaco U21s

Everton's Under-21s recovered from giving up a two-goal lead before running out 4-2 winners over Monaco Under-21s in the Premier League International Cup at Walton Hall Park this evening.

The Toffees got off to an ideal start when Francis Okoronkwo's shot was saved but Sean McAllister turned home the rebound in only the second minute.

The same combination led to the second with half an hour gone as Kyle John found Okoronkwo who in turn centred for McAllister to convert and make it 2-0.

McAllister spurned a good chance to complete his hat-trick early in the second half when he fired wide of goal and Lewis Dobbin cleared the crossbar with an effort while the visitors threatened at the other end but Billy Crellin was equal to Michal's volley before Etonde's shot from close range was deflected behind.

Monaco eventually scored with 15 minutes left through Etonde and it was 2-2 almost immediately when Benama found the net.

But Everton restored their lead in the 82nd minute when Mackenzie Hunt's corner sailed directly into the net and 4 minutes after that Okoronkwo made sure.

Everton U21s: Crellin, Dixon, John (82' Bates), Astley, Campbell, Hunt, Djankpata (73' Beaumont-Clark), Metcalfe, Okoronkwo (88' Heath), McAllister (88' Sherif), Dobbin.

Another young Northern Ireland prospect has just put Everton U21’s ahead v Monaco at the Walton Hall Avenue ground -–Sean McAllister following up an Okoronkwo. effort to put the rebound into an empty net.

I don’t think this game is being televised.

And McAllister has made it 2-0 following another good move by Okoronkwo.

In a very lively second half, Monaco equalised with two goals in 60 seconds but Hunt and Okoronkwo scored two goals in the last 10 minutes to give Everton a 4-2 win, that's if anyone is bleedin' interested!

I search every bit of information I can find on our youngsters, always hoping that they will eventually become first-team regulars. Well done tonight, Lads.

David (6),

Going by a report on another website, it sounds like Billy Crellin, goalie, had a very good game and Everton were lucky scoring three scrappy goals.

They sat back and defended after taking a two-goal lead then started attacking again after they lost it… does it remind you of another team?
