Brentford striker Ivan Toney confessed he was annoyed at being brought in for the additional time against Slovakia in the Euro 2024.

In a press conference on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, the player reacted to the limited time given to him by coach Gareth Southgate so far in Euro 2024. He said, “Every player’s going to have the hump when they’re not playing games, especially when there’s one minute to go.”

“Luckily, we managed to get the equaliser, and then it was up to me to put myself in a better space and get out of my mood. I did that and managed to contribute to achieving Harry Kane’s goal.”

“I’ve got a guy who’s always talking about controlling your emotions, and, in that moment, it was time to control your emotions.”

“I was annoyed, but there were still 30 minutes of football to play. You’ve got to come out of that mood and focus.”

He made his first appearance for the Three Lions of England in the Euro 2024 against Slovakia and proceeded to create a chance for Harry Kane’s goal in extra time.
