  1. Goodbye!

    Right then, time for us to say goodbye. It wasn't a thriller but who cares? Everton have done what they needed to... escape unscathed. And their loyal fans who made the trip out to Slovakia have enjoyed a fun away day. Everyone's happy.

    Tune into the BBC Sport website tomorrow to find out who Ronald Koeman's men will face in the next stage. Cheerio!

    So what next for Everton on this European adventure? First, the draw for the play-off round. That takes place tomorrow at 12:00 BST.

    Forty-four teams will be stirred in the pot, including the likes of AC Milan, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille.

    Don't worry Blues. Everton won't play any those sides as the clubs are seeded by coefficient.

    The ties are played on 17 and 24 August, with the 22 winners going into the Europa League group stage. The proper stuff.

  3. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    I'm very interested to see how Dominic Calvert-Lewin develops over the season. He looks a positive player and willing to take risks. I might put a cheeky quid on him making the plane to Russia next summer...

  4. FULL-TIME

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Everton huffed and puffed but never looked like blowing the house down. Until Dominic Calvert-Lewin - the teenager who scored England's winner in the Under-20s World Cup final you will remember - clinically bagged with 10 minutes left.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Game over. Don't wait for the DVD. But the most important is Everton are through to the Europa League play-off.

  6. INJURY TIME

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Leighton Baines sprints forward down the left flank, probably for the final time, then gives up as he sees the ball run away from him. Matters little.

  7. INJURY TIME

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Three more minutes of football. Then everyone can go out and enjoy a pleasant evening in Ruzomberok.

  8. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Only one thing in the mind of Kevin Mirallas... to shoot. The angle is too tight, he'll never score from there. He doesn't. Matus Macik easily gathers and boots the ball forward.

  9. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Ruzomberok keeper Matus Macík momentarily forgets the rules as he runs out of the right side of his box and handles the ball. You can't do that Matus.

    Free-kick... Kevin Mirallas stands over it...

  10. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Ruzomberok are still plodding on as Everton look to run down the clock. A hopeful punt from a home player lands straight in the grasp of Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford. He tells his team-mates to calm down and relax. Good advice.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Wayne Rooney's shift is over. The Everton forward clocks off for the evening, Kevin Mirallas coming on in his place. Steady outing for Rooney, ran about a bit, tried to make things happen, but lacked sharpness and didn't have a sniff of goal.

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    You always felt that Everton only needed one goal to seal this tie. But you weren't confident they'd get one.

  13. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Barring three late goals from Ruzomberok (and I assure you that ain't happening), Everton face one more play-off tie before sealing a spot in the Europa League.

  14. GOAL - Ruzomberok 0-1 Everton (agg 0-2)

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    Bingo! Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been sharper than your bathroom razor since coming on - and he's stuck Everton into the Europa League play-off round.

    The teenage substitute latches on to a through ball from Davy Klaassen, taking a couple of touches before drilling into the bottom corner from 18 yards. Clinical.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    Attacking substitution for the home side. They need to go for it. nothing ventured, nothing gained...

  16. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    Better! Davy Klaassen scampers down the right touchline, forcing a corner which Wayne Rooney will take. Decent delivery... Ashley Williams jumps, but the ball loops up into the keeper's hands.

  17. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    Tom Davies continues to provide most of Everton's spark, toiling away on that right flank. But the ball cannot be delivered into the box and Ruzomberok have little to defend.

  18. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    Rooneyyyyyy! Oh... Rooney. The Everton forward is hoping to bag his first goal since returning to his boyhood club, but after receiving a square pass from the left he dithers and is closed down before he pings a shot.

  19. Post update

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    The hosts are the ones who need to score, however. If they don't, then their third European adventure is over. On comes Marek Sapara, with Dalibor Takac making way.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Ruzomberok 0-0 Everton (agg 0-1)

    Change for Everton. They need something. Dominic Calvert-Lewin - one of the stars of England's Under 20's World Cup win - is hoping to provide that spark. He's on for Sandro.
