Australian international midfielder Tim Cahill scored a hat-trick as Premier League Everton defeated second-tier Championship newcomers Norwich City 4-2 on Saturday in a pre-season friendly.
Former Everton goalkeeper John Ruddy gifted Cahill a sixth minute opener before the Australian added his second seven minutes before half-time.
But Norwich levelled through Andrew Crofts and Andrew Surman in the second half.
South African star Steven Pienaar set-up Russian Diniyar Bilyaletdinov for Everton’s third before Cahill completed his hat-trick on 71 minutes.
