André Gomes cruises into the quarter-finals of the #ePremierLeague Invitational with a dominant win over Reece James.
He is a belter, but also a bit of a gamer! 😄
Man City and Raheem Sterling up next on Friday! 🎮https://t.co/GttDzDg0Ay
“I actually hadn’t touched the PlayStation in a while until one week ago, then I practised!” Gomes revealed. “I’m happy, I enjoyed it a lot. I am ready for the next one!”
Gomes’ Everton got off to a flying start, with a pair of smart Calvert-Lewin finishes putting the Blues 2-0 up within the opening 20 minutes.
The striker completed his hat-trick on the stroke of half-time – sliding the ball home after a sweeping team move.
Gylfi Sigurdsson made it 4-0 just after the break, before Bernard netted the Toffees' fifth.
Calvert-Lewin got his fourth and Everton’s sixth midway through the second half, before Bernard scored again to make it seven.
Sigurdsson completed the scoring for Gomes’ rampant Blues.
If Gomes beats Sterling on Friday, he will progress to the last four of the tournament. The semi-finals and final will take place on Saturday afternoon and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event from 3pm.
The prize fund for the event is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
