ForEverton members can buy their tickets for the Hull City game on 3 December now!

Aside from the international reaction, there's still plenty of Everton coverage in Saturday's newspapers.

On the transfer front, the Mirror claim the Blues and Stoke are interested in taking Marseille forward Jordan Ayew on loan in January.

The Liverpool Echo, meanwhile, report that Antolin Alcaraz could be fit to make his Everton debut as soon as next Saturday's home game against Hull City.

Robert Elstone's blog on youth development and the Premier League makes the Echo, while Barry Horne believes Everton's away fan initiative is one that should be praised.

There's also a nostalgic feel to today's Echo, as they document former Blue Tony Kay, who is set to play himself in a stage play called The Class of 63.

Following Friday's World Cup qualifiers, Romelu Lukaku graces many of the nationals after firing Belgium to Brazil, while Seamus Coleman's birthday honour as Republic of Ireland captain also gets a mention.

Most of Saturday's tabloids and broadsheets calculate their player ratings from England's 4-1 win over Montenegro, with Leighton Baines deemed to be England's best player by several.

Phil Jagielka appears in the Echo as he assesses the Three Lion's remaining game against Poland on Tuesday night.
