England fans send Ivan Toney message to Gareth Southgate amid latest starring Brentford display


Followers of the English national team have taken to social media in their numbers on Friday night, to send a message to Gareth Southgate regarding the talents of Ivan Toney.

Hitman Toney, of course, has seen his name take its place centre stage in the headlines late this evening.

This comes with the 26-year-old having proven the star of the show, in guiding Brentford to an impressive 2-0 downing of Brighton & Hove Albion.

Toney was first on target just shy of the half-hour mark, in rounding out a fine Bees team move with a gorgeous finish:

And the striker was back at it again on the other side of the interval, slotting home from the penalty spot to make it 20 spot-kicks converted from 20 attempts in Brentford colours:

Supporters of Toney at club level, though, are not the only ones to have had their attentions widely piqued late on Friday.

Joining the Bees faithful, as alluded to above, have been droves of England fans, keen to send a message to national team boss Gareth Southgate.

This comes amid mounting calls for Toney to be afforded what is widely viewed as a deserved call-up for the Qatar World Cup:
