Everton boss Roberto Martinez remains upbeat despite only picking up a point away at FC Krasnodar after their 1-1 in the Europa League group stages, Skysports reports.
The Toffees have to come back from 1-0 down in a match where their opponents caused quite a bit of problems for the Premier League side before former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o rescued a point for his manager.
However, Martinez believes the draw is a good result as his team are still on top of Group H with four points after two games.
He said: “I am pleased because I thought Krasnodar played really, really well.
“We showed an incredible character to know to we had to wait a little bit and then be able to get ourselves back in the game.
“I think we finished the second half really, really strongly and I think the energy levels were in our favour at that point.
“It’s an incredible result for us to be able to get something from a very good side, who used their home advantage very well.
“I think anything you can get away from home is a positive.
“We were able to weather the storm in a couple of periods and then I felt we finished really strongly and could have won it at the end.
“I think, in the end, we deserved it.”
