Four Everton Stars In International Action

Everton duo Kika van Es and Inessa Kaagman both featured as a last-ditch goal denied Holland victory in their final game of the Tournoi de France.

Taking on the hosts in Valenciennes, Holland thought strikes from Lynn Wilms, Sherida Spitse and Lieke Martens had earned them a consolation win against a French side who had already been crowned tournament winners.

However, Ouleymata Sarr stabbed in from close range with 94 minutes on the clock to add to earlier French efforts from Valerie Gauvin and Griedge Mbock Bathy.

Van Es played the full 90 minutes at left-back, while forward Kaagman was introduced in place of Shanice van de Sanden for the final six minutes.

The draw was Holland's third from three games in the competition but a point was enough to see them finish second ahead of Brazil and Canada.

Elsewhere, Lucy Graham played 66 minutes as tournament winners Scotland made it three wins from three in the Pinatar Cup by coming from a goal down to record a 2-1 victory over Simone Magill's Northern Ireland.

Scotland had already sealed top spot by beating Ukraine and Iceland but fell behind to Rachel Furness' early header.

However, a swerving strike from Erin Cuthbert pulled the Scots level on 35 minutes, before Abbi Grant struck the decisive goal three minutes later.

Magill played 80 minutes for Northern Ireland, who finish bottom of the four-team mini-league, with Iceland second and Ukraine third.
