Brentford 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion: Ivan Toney underlines England’s credentials with two goals

Ivan Toney scored his 50th and 51st league goals for Brentford against Brighton

Ivan Toney underlined his England credentials with two goals as Brentford returned to winning ways against Brighton in the Premier League.

Although Brighton have enjoyed a number of excellent results on their travels this season, they struggled for fluidity and incisiveness against high-energy opposition led by Toney on his 100th appearance for the Bees.

The hosts had already seen Bryan Mbeumo’s impromptu volley cannon over the visitors’ bar by the time Toney opened the scoring with a wonderful right-wing strike from Frank Onyeka.

With Brighton looking for an equalizer after the break, Toney doubled their advantage after Joel Veltman’s raw challenge allowed him to convert his eighth top-flight penalty.

As a result, Thomas Frank’s side move up to eighth in the table, one place and one point behind the Seagulls who are still without a win under new coach Roberto de Zerbi.

Toney was called up to the England squad for September’s Nations League games against Italy and Germany, but was not used by Gareth Southgate.

However, as it stands now, he is looking for a place on the plane to Qatar for the upcoming World Cup, with only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland (15) scoring more Premier League goals than the Bees centre-forward, with eight. .
