Everton to face Ruzomberok or Brann in Europa League qualifying
Last Updated: 14/07/17 12:46pm
Everton will play Ruzomberok (Slovakia) or Brann (Norway) in the Europa League third qualifying round.
The Toffees, who finished seventh in the Premier League last season, earned the chance to reach the European competition after sixth-placed Manchester United passed their spot down when they won the EFL Cup.
Ronald Koeman's side, with recent acquisition Wayne Rooney in their ranks, will face the two legs before their Premier League campaign kicks off, with all ties set to take place on Thursday, July 27 and August 3.
