Everton had no answer to two pedigree second-half goals as they went down 2-0 away to Fiorentina in the first leg of their last-16 UEFA Cup tie on Thursday night.

After a first half in which Everton were off the pace - and doubtless relieved to still be level - Zdravko Kuzmanovic and then Riccardo Montolivo each produced a memorable finish to confirm the Italians´ superiority.

It was harsh on Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard, who had come to his team´s rescue with a succession of outstanding saves - but otherwise the Toffees got their just deserts.
