Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson was all in all for Everton who won 5: 4 over Tottenham in extra time in – team the English Cup final in football tonight. The Icelandic national team player scored one and scored three goals in the game.

It was the visitors who took the lead and that right at the beginning of the game. Defender Davinson Sánchez put the ball into the net after a corner kick by Heung-Min Son in the third minute and Tottenham could have easily increased their lead after that, Son himself got a good chance saved by Robin Olsen and the visitors were generally more playful in the first half.

The situation was about to change abruptly when the home team took over and scored three goals in just over seven minutes. Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalized on 16. minute with a steady shot to the near corner after a assist from Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson, but the Icelandic national team player, who was in Everton’s starting line-up and played the whole game, had a better say in the game.

The Brazilian Richarlison came Everton in the lead two minutes later with a well-aimed shot in the left corner, now after Calvert-Lewin’s preparation and on 36. After a fine move down the middle Calvert-Lewin nearly gave the home side a goal after 27 minutes. The finishing shot went just wide, though. He scored safely with a shot in the right corner. The visitors managed to close the gap before half time, Érik Lamela did it in extra time after a triangle game with Son into the penalty area.

The situation became so even on 57. A minute later Sánchez scored his second goal, again following a corner kick but just over ten minutes later the home side took the lead again, Richarlison with his second goal from a narrow shot after a shot from Gylfi which ended the game with one goal and two assists. The goal seemed to be enough for Everton to win, but captain Harry Kane, who came in as a substitute for Tottenham, was different and equalized at 4: 4 on 68. minute with a header from close range after a pardon from Son.

It was therefore necessary to resort to extra time to separate the teams. Gylfi Þór had kept the best there until the last time he had his third assist 68. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Bernard got himself booked. The manager of Tottenham was not happy. This time Tottenham failed to equalize.

Everton have reached the quarterfinals along with Bournemouth from the B-League and Premier League teams Leicester, Manchester City, Manchester United and Sheffield United but two games take place tomorrow. There are Wolevs and Southampton and Barnsley matches against Chelsea, but they will be drawn in the quarter-finals on the second night.
