Victor Anichebe was on target as Everton beat Sydney FC 1-0 in their first pre-season game in Australia on Saturday. The striker scored a minute into the second half, receiving a pass from Leighton Baines and turning well before shooting into the roof of the net. Australia international Tim Cahill received a tremendous reception from the 40,000 strong crowd inside the ANZ Stadium when he came on at half-time. Boss David Moyes told evertontv: "I thought we played well against a decent side. They are a bit ahead of us in their pre-season but the players played well. "The way we passed it looked a lot like the way we were playing towards the end of last season. "We controlled most of the game but they were a bit of a threat. They weren't a poor team by any means, I actually think they were one of the better teams we have played in pre-season."
