Cape Town - Everton midfielder and former Bafana Bafana captain Steven Pienaar was mistakenly called 'penis' by English pundit, Mark Lawrenson.

The legendary Liverpool defender found himself calling Pienaar 'penis' in error while acting as an analyst on BBC's Match of the Day over weekend, which saw the return of 'Schillo' in Everton's famous blue and white.

Lawrenson was part of Liverpool's successful sides in the 1980s and won 12 trophies in his seven-year stay at the club.

Pienaar has been sidelined for several months with niggling injuries, but returned to action to help coach Roberto Martinez's charges to a 2-0 win over Dagenham and Redbridge in their FA Cup third round encounter.

Aroune Kone netted a well taken headed goal from a Kevin Miralles free-kick and the Belgian then doubled Everton's lead with a spot-kick after he was fouled in the penalty area.

Meanwhile, Pienaar will be hoping to be in Martinez's match-day squad on Wednesday, January 13 as Everton travel to Manchester City for a English Premiership encounter.

Kick-off is at 21:45 SA time.
