The summer of 2013 saw Everton head Stateside to take part in the inaugural International Champions Cup.
The prestigious pre-season tournament pitted the Blues against Spanish duo Real Madrid and Valencia but not before a glamorous San Francisco opener against Italian giants Juventus.
Kevin Mirallas’ fine run and finish - followed by an inventive baseball swing celebration - saw Everton take the lead inside AT&T Park, the home of San Francisco Giants.

However, just as it looked as though the spoils would go to the Toffees, Kwadwo Asamoah produced a scorching equaliser to force the drama of a penalty shootout.
After 10 successful spot kicks, it was none other than the legendary Andrea Pirlo who stunningly sent his effort wide.
A teenage John Stones immediately produced a cheeky ‘Panenka’ to give Everton the advantage, before Tim Howard saved from Federico Peluso to secure a memorable pre-season success.
