Everton’s Jonjoe Kenny has earned the trust of Schalke boss Jonjoe Kenny and he gave the Bundesliga side a terrific and necessary goal on Sunday.

With Schalke winless since January and mustering only two Weston McKennie goals in its previous 10 matches.

Union Berlin led 1-0 and was largely controlling play with a 7-0 shot advantage when Schalke moved quickly off a relatively non-threatening throw-in.

Kenny collected the ball on the right, yards outside the 18, and lashed a rocket across goal and past a flying Rafael Gikiewicz.

Schalke’s scored just six goals since Christmas including Kenny’s marker.

It’s the 23-year-old right back’s second goal to go with three assists in 30 matches on loan from Goodison Park.
