    This international break will be Southgate’s final opportunity to run the rule over his players before picking a squad for Qatar in November.

    Toney, 26, earned his spot with his exceptional form for Brentford this season.

    He has bagged five goals in six Prem outings thus far, also laying on two assists.

    The forward scored 12 league goals last term, having fired the Bees to promotion with 31 efforts the season before.
