Brentford fans were quick to mock Harry Kane over his World Cup penalty miss during their match against Tottenham.
Kane missed a crucial spot kick in England’s quarter-final clash against France out in Qatar, which ultimately proved costly.
Bees fans then took hold of an early opportunity to tease the 29-year-old in the first Premier League match since England’s World Cup ended.
In the first game on Boxing Day, they could be heard telling he’s let his country down and signing: “Ivan Toney, he would have scored that!”
Toney was not named in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad for the tournament in Qatar.
His 11 goals in 16 games beforehand would suggest he was worthy of a spot – and Brentford fans clearly thought so – but Callum Wilson travelled as the other striker instead.
Spurs fans were quick to defend their man, though, signing ‘Harry Kane, he’s one of our own’ during the warm-ups and when the teams lined up.
And he proved how vital he was to his team with a goal in the thrilling 2-2 draw.

Jumping high, he directed his header into the goal to spark a fight back in west London.
The spotlight was on the 29-year-old ahead of the match following what happened against France.
Many believe he should not have taken a second penalty in the match, having netted from the spot earlier in the second half.
A goal would have surely taken the clash to extra-time, but England eventually crashed out in the final eight.
Despite what happened, Kane still has 13 goals to his name in all competitions for Spurs this season.
Antonio Conte’s side will be hoping he can put his World Cup heartbreak behind him and help guide them to a top four finish.
