On Friday, July 29, FC Dynamo Kyiv played another “Match For Peace! Stop The War!” charity game. Mircea Lucescu’s men faced the English Premier League side Everton FC.
Only two ways before that, the White-Blues grabbed a very important win against Fenerbahce in the Champions League 2nd qualifying round second leg. Thus no wonder that at the Goodison Park the starting lineup mostly included those who didn’t play in Istanbul or made substitute appearances. As for the Toffees, Frank Lampard used mixed squad while Dynamo trainee Vitaliy Mykolenko got captain’s armband.
The game started with a trouble for Dynamo. In the fourth minute, after long ball by Tarkowski, Calvert-Lewin headed the ball in despite standing with his back to the goal.
Still that didn’t really upset visitors. Syrota had a decent chance after corner, but his header was inaccurate. Everton keeper coped with pretty good strike by Vanat.
There was danger in Dynamo penalty area too from time to time. After cross from the corner flag, Calvert-Lewin had another great opportunity, put Neshcheret parried his shot. Later Gray missed the upper V from inside the box.
