Classic Derbies: Deadly Danny
Teenager Cadamarteri stuns Liverpool with fine solo goal in 1997.
The 2-0 win over Liverpool in October 1997 will always be remembered as the day Danny Cadamarteri showcased his raw talent with a fine solo goal.
The dreadlocked youngster grabbed his moment in the spotlight – and the history books – with a virtuoso second half strike.
Aged just 18 years and six days, Cadamateri put the seal on an impressive win over Roy Evans' side – scoring a goal which made him the youngest Blue ever to score in a Merseyside derby.
Everton, already ahead after Neil Ruddock had headed an Andy Hinchcliffe corner into his own net, were bossing the game when Cadamateri stole the ball from dithering Norwegian Bjorn Tore Kvarme.
The youngster raced through the gears before side stepping the statuesque Ruddock and planting an unstoppable shot into the bottom corner beyond keeper David James.
The goal gave the Blues their first home victory over Liverpool since 1994 - and it would be seven years before Lee Carsley gave the Goodison faithful a taste of derby day delight once again.
