Shani Tarashaj in Switzerland training
Swiss midfielder Shani Tarashaj was in action for Everton last night, making his first ever start for the club.
Tarashaj featured in the friendly win away to MK Dons, a 3-1 victory which saw goals from Gerard Deulofeu, Ross Barkley and Muhamed Besic.

Tarashaj even found the net himself, only for his effort to be ruled out for a handball in the build-up.
His night ended early when he picked up a knock, suffering a nosebleed, and was taken off for Aiden McGeady.
McGeady's poor performance only served to highlight how bright Tarashaj had been, with the Swiss international looking like he has already settled.

Former boss Roberto Martinez signed the 21-year-old back in January, only to loan him back to Zurich as part of the agreement to sign him.
Now after being part of Switzerland's Euro 2016 squad, he is ready to roll at Everton, and while last night was only a brief glimpse of what he can do, the initial signs are positive.
Here is a look at how Everton fans reacted on Twitter to his display...
