How Twitter reacted to Everton’s favourable Europa League third qualifying round draw

Written by

For the first time since the 2014-15 season Everton will embark on a European adventure next season, and on Friday morning the Toffees found out the first obstacle on the long road to glory.

The draw for the third qualifying round of the Europa League has pitted Ronald Koeman’s side against either Slovakian outfit Ruzomberok or Norway’s SK Brann, with their tie still in the balance.

Goodison Park will play host to the first-leg in a fortnight’s time, with the away leg taking place a week later – just nine days before Everton’s Premier League campaign begins up against Stoke City.

It’s still anyone’s guess as to who their opponent will be on 27 July though, with SK Brann 1-0 winners in the first-leg of the second qualifying round tie ahead of the return fixture next Thursday.

Should the Merseyside outfit progress through this round then they’ll advance to the Play-Off stage.

Everton’s Twitter account kicked off the social media activity with this tweet…

And it’s fair to say that Everton fans were pleased with the draw…

With some even wondering if their potential opponents were real teams…

But fans of their potential opposition are already relishing the Everton challenge…

And on a side note, some fans were still licking their lips after this Wayne Rooney stunner yesterday…

What do you think Everton fans? Will you progress to the Play-Offs? Let us know below.
