The Anglo-Nigerian forward opened his goals account in Europe with a double as the Toffees bowed out of the competition with a win
Ademola Lookman was on target twice as Everton crushed Apollon Limassol 3-0 in a dead-rubber Europa League clash on Thursday.
Before this game, the English Premier League side had already crashed out of the competition. However, they put up a commanding display at the Tsirio Stadium to end their campaign on a high – with the youngster the protagonist.
He scored twice in the opening half-hour with Nikola Vlasic getting a late strike to end his 20-match scoreless run in all competitions and give the Toffees their first win at the final attempt in Group E.
