Everton captain Phil Jagielka was impressed by the club's young players during their Austrian preseason camp.

Joel Robles, Tyias Browning, Shane Duffy, Conor Grant, Matthew Kennedy, Conor McAleny, Francisco Junior and goalscorer Apostolos Vellios all got the opportunity to impress against Austria Vienna.

"In terms of their attitudes and their ability, they've all done really well," Jagielka told evertonfc.com. "It's nice for the manager to give them all game time. He could have just brought them all on for 10 minutes at the end but it was nice that most of them got 45 minutes.

"It's a test now to see if they can stay in the squad when a few more senior members come back."
