It was Andros Townsend’s equaliser on 65 minutes that leveled both sides, and earned Everton a deserved point on the road.

Ronaldo came on in the 57th minute but had minimal impact either before or after the equaliser.

Super Eagles’ Everton forward Alex Iwobi was absent from the game as he was already ruled out of the encounter due to injury.
