Reece James fires dig at Gareth Southgate after Ivan Toney omission from World Cup squad

Reece James appears to have criticized England manager Gareth Southgate in Ivan Toney’s Instagram post.

Toney continued his fine form this season by scoring a brace against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon. His goals secured Brentford three crucial points in an emphatic finish for the Bees.

The striker made headlines this week after being a notable omission from Southgate’s 26-man England squad to travel to Qatar and compete in the World Cup. He has scored 10 goals this season and is third in the Golden Boot race, above Mohamed Salah, Gabriel Jesus and Cristiano Ronaldo, but was not considered fit enough to play for the Three Lions this winter.

His “blocking out the noise” celebration was taken as a jab at Southgate.
