BREAKING NEWS: Sean Dyche responds to Everton friendly game question as plan for international break emerges

Everton manager Sean Dyche is undecided whether his team would play a private match during the international break.

Following the 2-2 draw with Sheffield United, Dyche stated that it was his intention to organize a game in the second week of the international break to enable returning players build their fitness levels. When asked on Saturday if he planned to do the same thing again, Everton manager David Moyes stated he was unsure because of who may be available.
“I don’t think we’ll have enough fit players because we have to monitor the ones who are still coming back from injury,” he stated.

“If we can find an appropriate game, we might have a behind-closed-doors game for the players coming back from injury or who need some more practice.”

“But we’ll have to keep an eye on things because, obviously, after a game, you never know who’s injured and all that.” That won’t be known until Monday. We’ll piece it together based on who’s in the building and who’s fit.”
