Everton crashed out of Europe after a 4-3 aggregate defeat to Belgian side Standard Liege in the first leg of the UEFA Cup.The goal was sparked by a fierce 22-yard drive from captain Steven Defour that swerved through the air, forcing Howard into a fingertip save to his left.

The loose ball, though, was swiftly collected by Jovanovic who delivered a looping cross to the far post.With Howard still scrambling to his feet following his efforts moments previously, Witsel was able to sidefoot home from a yard out.That left Everton needing to score twice against a team who had only conceded three goals in six Jupiler League games this season.Saha had another half-effort before the break, but again failed to properly connect from 15 yards.
After the anonymous Ayegbeni Yakubu headed a Mikel Arteta cross wide in the 58th minute, Moyes then went for broke four minutes later in bringing on a third striker in Victor Anichebe.
The move provided a spark as it was a drive from Anichebe that spun off the clearing head of Witsel which led to the equaliser.From the corner swung in by Arteta, Espinoza rose unmarked to collect, only to drop the ball at his feet.Even then he appeared to have time to make amends for his howler, but was so slow in reacting, it allowed Jagielka to toe poke home his third career goal for Everton, and first since February.
But 12 minutes from time Baines bundled over Jovanovic inside the area, with German referee Peter Sippel instantly pointing to the spot.
