On This Day: 30/09
Tommy Eglington earned his first cap for the Republic of Ireland ON THIS DAY in 1946.
The Everton winger was on the losing side in Dublin when the Republic fell 1-0 to England.
Two months later, along with Peter Farrell, he was selected for Northern Ireland to play against Scotland.
At the time, Northern Ireland could select Republic-born players for the Home International Championship.
Along with Ted Sagar, who played for both England and Northern Ireland during the Second World War, Eglington and Farrell are the only players to have played for more than on national team whilst on the books at Everton.
Everton went into the Second Round draw for the European Cup ON THIS DAY in 1970.
The Blues completed a convincing 9-2 aggregate win over Keflavik with a 3-0 win in Iceland.
A full house of 9,500 saw goals from Alan Whittle and two from Joe Royle win the game for Everton.
The Toffees beat Borussia Monchengladbach in the next round but were eventually knocked out by Panathinaikos in Round three.
