Everton boss David Moyes has heaped praise on Johnny Heitinga after the Dutchman's super strike on Wednesday.

The Toffees found themselves a goal behind against Birmingham at Goodison Park, but the defender scored a crucial equaliser from outside the box to draw the sides level.

Despite having the better share of possession, Moyes' side couldn't create a winner and were forced to settle for a point.

Heitinga's strike was undoubtedly the highlight in a cagey affair, and the Scot recognises the quality his player possesses.


"He has got great technique. It doesn't take me by surprise because he is a really good striker of the ball," said the Everton boss.

"He is very good with both feet. He plays centre-half most of the time, but he is a really good technician and he showed that with his finish."

Everton have a week off this weekend after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Reading, but return to Barclays Premier League action against Fulham next Saturday.
