Cape Town - Everton manager Roberto Martinez was pleased with the young team he put out on Thursday night, despite his side losing 1-0 to Krasnodar in the Europa League.

The Toffees welcomed their Russian opponents to Goodisan park for their final group H game with top spot already in the bag. Martinez used the match as an opportunity to see some of his younger players in action.

"It was a shame we couldn’t get a positive result but I was so proud of the youngsters on the pitch," Football411 quote Martinez as saying after the game.

"Developing our youngsters is part of what we want to achieve."

Having wrapped up the Europa League’s group stages, Everton can turn their attention back to the Premier League ahead of QPR’s visit to Merseyside on Monday night.
