Ronald Koeman's side will use the friendly to celebrate Everton's club-record partnership with gaming giant SportPesa. And now Rooney is looking forward to getting to know more of the squad on his maiden visit to Tanzania. "I’m looking forward to it - it should be a good trip,” he told evertontv.

“It’ll be nice and hopefully I’ll get on the pitch and get some game-time. It’s good when you go away with the team. It’s good to be around the hotel with the players, spend more time with them and get to know them more. I’ve never been to Tanzania before, so I’m really looking forward to it.”

Gor Mahia will depart for the friendly on Tuesday and will be looking to get a win after being bundled out of GOtv Shield by Bandari on Sunday.
