Everton fullback Tony Hibbert says the club is proud to be providing the opposition for the MLS Allstars.

On Saturday, Everton face River Plate and Hibbert told the Daily Post: "The Premier League is world wide now.

“You can see from the positions that we have finished in that we are starting to be recognised more and more and to have a game against the MLS All-Stars is a big bonus.

“First, though, we have got River Plate and that will be another great experience. It will be a different type of football and they are a world class side.

“ It might be pre-season and it might only be a friendly but we still want to win.”
