Everton skipper Neville excited about River Plate friendly

Everton skipper Phil Neville is excited about the prospect of facing Argentina's River Plate in a friendly in Canada this preseason.

"Everyone who knows football knows about River Plate," he said. "I am really looking forward to the match and it will, of course, be a very tough test for us at that stage of our pre-season preparation.

"Any games between English and Argentinean teams will be good ones and although this is a friendly for both of us, I'm sure it will be keenly contested."
