Everton beat Gor Mahia in a friendly at Goodison Park last night and it was a chance for some fringe players to impress.
Marco Silva ran the rule over a number of less-fancied individuals, and some younger squad members, as Everton beat Kenyan visitors Gor Mahia 4-0.
And one player who would have particularly caught the eye was Nathan Broadhead.
The 20-year-old was introduced as a second half substitute and his performance would have turned Silva’s head.
Broadhead looked bright during the game and grabbed himself a goal and an assist during his cameo appearance.
The lively young forward could be the next man in Everton’s production line and Silva will definitely monitor his progress in the youth sides from now on.
With Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse failing to show why they should replace Richarlison up front for the Toffees, Silva might look at alternative options in that department.
Broadhead’s display last night will put him in contention for a spot in Silva’s match day squad soon.
Alongside fellow exciting young strikers like Bassala Sambou and Fraser Hornby, Broadhead has shone at youth level.
The Wales under-21 international is both footed and is rated as one of the best starlets in the academy.
After announcing himself to the Everton faithful last night, there will be high hopes for Broadhead’s future.
