Everton boss David Moyes was impressed by the performance of new signing Magaye Gueye during the first game of their pre-season tour to Australia.
The 20-year-old French striker joined the Toffees on a five-year contract from Strasbourg in June and made his first appearance for the Premier League club during Saturday's 1-0 victory over Sydney FC.
Fellow striker Victor Anichebe scored the only goal of the game, but Moyes was impressed by Gueye
"He did well," he told the club's official website."He was good on the ball and we trusted him with the ball.
"You can see he is going to have good ability. At the moment the language barrier is a little bit in the way and we are still finding where we think he will be of best use to us.
"It wasn't the best surface but great credit to the players. They worked hard and played well."
