Chelsea fullback James weighs into Toney England debate

Chelsea fullback Reece James has weighed into Brentford striker Ivan Toney’s England snub.

Toney just one day after not being picked for the Three Lions jetting off to Qatar put in a man of the match performance by notching two goals to help the Bees seal a shock 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City.

The uncapped striker made his point clear by even uploading a photo of himself with his fingers in his ears on Instagram after being snubbed by the Three Lions.

Chelsea defender James, who is also not part of the Three Lions squad through injury, aimed a playful dig by commenting on Toney’s post: “If I speak I’m in big trouble” – the infamous quote former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho made in 2014.

The 22-year-old was not the only one to comment as Roma striker Tammy Abraham, who was also overlooked, responded with a death person emoji, replicating Toney’s celebration.
