It is reported that the new Toffees striker will face Gor Mahia on Thursday in a pre-season friendly match at the Tanzania National Stadium in Dar Es Salaam.

Rooney reported for his first day of training at USM Finch Farm on Monday and will be part of the travelling party to East Africa later this week as manager Ronald Koeman prepares for a maiden meeting with K’Ogalo.

Meanwhile, the trip is set to celebrate Everton’s Club-record partnership with gaming giant SportPesa.

“I’m looking forward to it – it should be a good trip. It’ll be nice and hopefully I’ll get on the pitch and get some game-time,” Rooney told EvertonTV on Monday.

“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.”

On the other hand, it is announced that coach Dylan Kerr’s outfit will jet off out of the country on Tuesday morning en route to Tanzania.
