Everton boss Marco Silva has praised the Evertonians who made tonight’s win over Rotherham a record breaker in the League Cup by being the highest attended first game in the tournament in 50 years.
More than 31,000 Evertonians flocked to see Silva’s men see off the Championship side thanks to goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin and put the their side into the hat for the third round draw.
“The result is important for us,” said the Blues’ boss.
“The support from our fans was fantastic. A Wednesday evening, the first game in the Cup and 31,000 is fantastic for us and it showed us they are behind us and believe in this squad.
“It’s never easy when you change 8 players from one game to the next but everybody works in the same way and knows what they have to do.
“Some things to improve as well, we try to take this from the game.
“Kieran, Kenny as well, Tom it’s nothing new to but it was a good performance.
“It was our goal to get into the next round and we did everything we could to get there and we are happy.”
