Toney: I'm not going to let England opportunity go by me

Ivan Toney says he will not let his opportunity with England pass him by with the World Cup squad less than two months away from being selected.

The Brentford striker has been handed his maiden call-up by Gareth Southgate ahead of Nations League fixtures against Italy and Germany this month.

Toney has never featured for the England youth teams, but since Brentford's promotion to the Premier League, has caught the eye of the England manager.

It is the realisation of a lifelong dream for the striker, who is determined to take the opportunity he now has with the opportunity to go to the World Cup in Qatar on the horizon.

I never doubted it. I have full confidence in myself, I feel like I have to keep working hard and it makes it that much sweeter when you get the chance," Toney told a press conference on Tuesday.
