Elstone: "Everton Chile were considered as opposition for pre-season but the most important thing is the quality of the opposition and the decision was made on footballing grounds."

Is he saying they're not good enough to play at pre-season?

What a ridiculous comment, we played a non-league side last pre-season.

You do know Everton are the Chilean Champions and played in the South American equivalent to the Champions League (Copa Libertadores) this year? :)

Maybe it wasn't cost effective to go to Chile for a pre-season game to celebrate another club's centenary and then move on to USA/Canada ?

Chile isn't exactly on the way to the USA either.

Why not fly them in for a friendly is another question. I can only imagine it'd be sold out for name sake.
