Brentford boss Frank: Toney should go to World Cup

Brentford boss Thomas Frank insists Ivan Toney should be in England's World Cup squad.

Toney faces former club Newcastle United this weekend.

He scored against his former employers in the corresponding fixture last term and will be looking to add to his five goals already this term on Saturday.

Frank said, "I think for Ivan the most important thing is to perform every day at the training ground and then perform on Saturday against Newcastle, hopefully score a goal or two. Keep doing that and with his performances he needs to ask questions to Gareth Southgate.

"It is up to Gareth to take the decision over what he thinks is the best squad for the World Cup. I am sure he will take the best squad. Gareth wants to win the World Cup so he will bring the best and most competitive squad.

"If you ask me, I see Ivan every day and I am bias but I think he should be there."
