    Regardless, Toney was still left out of Gareth Southgate’s squad.

    But he dusted himself down himself down to score twice in a shock win at The Etihad.

    Toney’s first-half header looked to have only earned the Bees just a point after Phil Foden fired home a fine equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

    But he had other ideas, tapping home in the eighth minute of added-time.

    For his first goal, ex-Peterborough star celebrated by cupping his ears, appearing to be aimed at Southgate, before producing a similar act for the winner.

    He took to Instagram to make his point even further, uploading a photo of himself with his fingers in his ears.

    And two other England players not going to Qatar replied.

    James, who’s missing out through injury, said: “If I speak I’m in big trouble 😂.”
