STRACQ IN THE GROOVE

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By GRA­HAM CHASE

EVER­TON striker Denis Strac­qualursi reck­ons he is fi­nally show­ing the Tof­fees fans what he is all about.

The Argie striker, 24, was snapped up as a des­per­ate last-minute loan sign­ing from FC Ti­gres in Au­gust.

Blues man­ager David Moyes was strug­gling for front­men af­ter he had moved Jer­maine Beck­ford and Yakubu out of Good­i­son Park.

But af­ter fail­ing to find the net early on, Strac­qualursi (above) has whacked in three goals in five games and is start­ing to love life on Mersey­side.

He said: “When I first got here it was dif­fi­cult to adapt to the dif­fer­ent style of foot­ball.

“But now I’m get­ting games and get­ting time, I am scor­ing goals and that’s the main thing for a for­ward.

“I’m very happy with the goals.

“It’s very im­por­tant for for­wards to score goals for con­fi­dence.

“The main thing, though, is that we win – it’s a team ef­fort.”
