Everton boss Ronald Koeman admits his side 'are scared to play football' after Europa League draw

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has claimed his side were "afraid to play football" after they stumbled to a home draw against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League on Thursday (28 September). Goals from Wayne Rooney and Nikola Vlasic had given the Toffees a 2-1 lead after the Cypriot side had taken the lead through Adrian Sardinero, before Hector Yuste struck an 88th minute equaliser to earn 10-man Apoel a point. The draw leaves Everton bottom of their group after two games and Koeman rued his team's inability to close the game down.
