Everton advanced to the semifinals of the inaugral International Champions Cup by beating Juventus 6-5 in a penalty shootout. Along the way, one fan at AT&T Park in San Francisco apparently felt that Juventus needed some help in the shootout, so he jumped out of the stands and took Kwadwo Asamoah's shot.
Everton keeper Tim Howard made the save without having to move and the happy pitch invader jogged off on his own as the Juve bench laughed and applauded. The shot of the night came from Everton's 19-year-old defender John Stones, however, as he channeled Andrea Pirlo to chip Marco Storari. Have a look...
Stones must have channeled the life force right out of Pirlo, though. Since the bearded expert put his shot wide of the post. This might have disrupted the space-time continuum.
Kicking those American footballs must have done some temporary damage.
