At 6 ft 1 inches in height,Bolasie also has the physical power to come up with headed goals now and then.

As we approach the last 8 of this year’s European Championships, a number of players remain in with a chance of landing the Golden Boot. So who are the men most likely to finish as the tournament’s top goal scorer?
Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth claimed that the 3-0 win over relegated Norwich City was the perfect afternoon for Everton.
The club installed Unsworth as the man to lead the club for the final game of the campaign after parting company with Roberto Martinez a few days ago.

Everton have been poor throughout the campaign and this would not have been the result fans would have been hoping when the club spent big in the summer.
