Classic Openers: 2002/03
We look back to a Goodison curtain raiser in 2002.
Following Wednesday's announcement of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League fixtures, evertonfc.com looks back at another memorable opening day encounter...
Everton 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur - 17 August 2002
The stage was set for a memorable day at Goodison Park with Everton kicking off the campaign by celebrating 100 years of top-flight football.
A significant sub-plot was a debut for the precocious 16-year-old Wayne Rooney. David Moyes' decision to start the youngster looked as if it had paid off as he set up Mark Pembridge for the opening goal on 37 minutes.
Tottenham then turned the game on its head after the break as Matt Etherington fired high into the net before Blues debutant Richard Wright failed to keep Les Ferdinand's effort out.
But Tomasz Radzinski came to Everton's rescue with the clock ticking down as he fired in a low drive from inside the area.
Watch the highlights above now*.
