AUSTRIA: Four separate players – Cenk Tosun, Ademola Lookman, Oumar Niasse and Kevin Mirallas – all scored hat-tricks in the extraordinary match, with Mirallas ending up with five goals to himself.

Mirallas came off the bench at half-time and had a hat-trick by the 52nd minute, scoring three goals in four minutes before adding his fourth seven minutes later.

Oumar Niasse and Adeloma Lookman also bagged hat-tricks, but in the end, ATV had given up with five goals coming in the last 10 minutes, including a terrible own goal.

At one stage during the second-half, the scoreline became so ridiculous that Irding were unable to update the score correctly as they did not have the number ’21’ available, so merely displayed the score as ‘2-1’ on the scoreboard.

The level of opponent was criticised by fans and media on Twitter, with some even questioning what was the point in the Toffees travelling to Austria for a pointless friendly, while others questioned whether they had played the game on FIFA’s amateur difficulty level.
