By Omolagba Oluwayemi
Alex Iwobi’s Everton are set to travel to the USA this summer to battle Premier League rivals Arsenal, Italian champions Inter Milan and Colombian giants Millonarios for the 2021 Florida Cup, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The tournament, to be held at Orlando’s 65,000-capacity Camping World Stadium, will take place between 25-28 July.
The Blues will take on Millonarios on Sunday 25 July, with Arsenal facing Serie A holders Inter on the same day.
The two winners will then vie for the Florida Cup trophy on finals day, Wednesday 28 July, with the two remaining clubs facing off in a third-place play-off.
Millonarios, based in Bogota, are one of Colombia’s most successful clubs and 15-times winners of the country’s top division, Categoría Primera A. In 2018, they defeated Atlético Nacional 2-1 on aggregate to win the Superliga Colombiana title, the club’s most recent major honour.
Inter, whose leading lights include Everton’s record Premier League goalscorer Romelu Lukaku, scooped their first Serie A title since 2010 last season, while Arsenal are familiar foes.
