Everton’s Abdoulaye Doucoure scored an extra-time winner as it edged Rotherham United 2-1 in an absorbing FA Cup third round tie on Saturday, while sixth-tier side Chorley beat a Derby County team weakened by their COVID-19 outbreak.

After 90 minutes the score at Goodison Park was level at 1-1 with Cenk Tosun’s first Everton goal since November 2019 cancelled out by a 56th minute strike from lowly Championship (second-tier) side Rotherham’s American right back Matthew Olosunde.

But three minutes into extra time the Premier League side got the decisive goal when substitute Doucoure latched onto Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez’s precise through ball before sliding it past helpless goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.
