The video will start in 8 Cancel After travelling to Africa to face Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks in their first pre-season friendly, Everton now tackle FC Sion at the Stade St Marc by their Alpine training base close to both Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.

They now have a new coach in the shape of former Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz.

Brazilian defender Raphael, 28, also started off his senior career on these shores.



The Sion squad contains several intriguing characters.

There are four other Brazilians in the squad include attacking midfielder Adryan, 24, who played 13 games on loan for Leeds United in 2014/15 and winger Baltazar, 19, who prefers to go by his childhood nickname of Batata, which means potato.

Like Everton, Sion, whose regular ground Stade Tourbillon is less than 30 miles away, finished eighth in their domestic top flight last season – although there are only 10 clubs in the Swiss Super League so they only just avoided relegation.

Additional players of note include utility man Ermir Lenjani, 29, who has been capped 26 times by Albania and can operate in both defence and midfield plus 6ft 6in Latvian target man Robert Uldrikis, 21.
