Everton manager Ronald Koeman has taken to Twitter to react to the loss to Dynamo Dresden.
The Blues are currently in the midst of their pre-season schedule as they gear up for the new Premier League campaign.

It has been a good pre-season so far for them too, with wins over MK Dons and Barnsley to date.
They are currently in Germany taking part in the Dresden Cup, with Friday evening seeing them take on Dynamo Dresden.
Fans had expected another win, but things did not go to plan as a superb second half goal from Pascal Testroet saw them fall to a 2-1 defeat.

The loss was a disappointing one for the Blues given they created a number of chances throughout the game.
But reacting on Twitter, Koeman took another view, saying that the intensity of the game was exactly what his side needed.
It now remains to be seen if Everton can bounce back from this defeat and secure a positive end to their pre-season schedule with success in Dresden.
So far it has been a strong summer for them in terms of pre-season, which is a far cry from the last two years under Roberto Martinez.
