On Saturday, Everton embarrassed a fifth-division soccer team from Austria 22-0.
What was the point of playing such low-level competition?
I guess it brings attention to the host club, ATV Irdning, but that’s about it. I personally didn’t even know Austria had a top-level league, let alone a fifth-division league.
On the 20th goal scored by Everton, the opposing goalie didn’t even try. One could hardly blame him.
The win marked Marco Silva’s first as manager of Everton FC. Despite the blowout, it would be hard to defend the point that this was a competitive match.
