Horror injury casts pall over Everton win

EVERTON cruised into the FA Cup fifth round after winning 4-0 at third tier Stevenage but the victory came at a price.

Defender Bryan Oviedo (pictured) suffered a double fracture of his left leg, which could rule the Costa Rican international out of this year's World Cup in Brazil.

Oviedo, capped 26 times, was almost certain to be selected for the tournament.

The injury visibly upset some Everton players and manager Roberto Martinez said it took the gloss off the win.

"Those type of injuries leave a sick taste," said Martinez, who guided Wigan to victory in the FA Cup last year.

Wigan's title defence is still going strong after the Championship side beat Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace 2-1.

Man City needed a hat-trick from Argentine striker Sergio Aguero to beat championship side Watford 4-2.
