Moyes doubts Euro hopes

21 February 2010 10:22
Everton boss David Moyes still believes his team are outsiders to clinch a European place this term, despite their impressive 3-1 victory against Manchester United. The Toffees came from behind to clinch all three points at Goodison Park, with second-half goals by substitutes Jack Rodwell and Dan Gosling putting the gloss on a fine display by Moyes' injury-ravaged side. The Everton boss said after the match: "It's never easy to beat Manchester United. We keep being reminded as to how many times we've not beaten the top four. "But recently Chelsea and Manchester United have been here and we've beaten them both. "One of the key factors was getting the equaliser so soon after their goal and we needed it because they started brightly and we were a little behind it. "But it was a great team performance. There's a great work ethic among them and we're beginning to get back to the way we were over the last year or two. "The substitutes (Rodwell and Gosling) came on and made a big impact and that's part of being in the squad and ready to play. "They're both talented with great potential to go on, like Wayne (Rooney) at times. We'll try to nudge them along in the right way. "We can start to look up rather than down now. We've never given up on Europe but, in the same breath, I've always said it's a long shot. "We'll keep bundling along and see where we end up."
