Everton ended a preseason U.S. tour with a 3-1 win over MLS side DC United at RFK Stadium.

The Toffees made a flying start despite the sweltering conditions and were 2-0 up after 16 minutes thanks to goals from Victor Anichebe and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.

Anichebe raced onto a throughball from Leighton Baines and finished from an acute angle in the fourth minute.

Bilyaletdinov then followed up with a calm finish after a superb move which involved Jack Rodwell, Ross Barkley and Apostolos Vellios.

Chris Pontius pulled a goal back shortly after the restart when he beat Jan Mucha from Dwayne De Rosario's pass.

But Magaye Gueye wrapped up the win for Everton on 81 when he slotted home Jermaine Beckford's cross.
