Everton’s record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a 50-yard stunning goal as the Toffees booked their place in the Europa League group stages.

Sigurdsson, who joined from Swansea City for a club-record transfer fee of £45 million earlier this month, left an immediate impact on his first Everton start with an unforgettable goal.

Everton were leading 2-0 from the first leg, but they went behind when Josip Radosevic scored just before half-time with a long range effort.

However, immediately after the break, Sigurdsson scored a brilliant goal to restore parity. The 27-year-old picked up a loose ball on the right of the pitch, and fired an effort high towards the Hajduk goal and over the reach of goalkeeper Dante Stipica.
