Ivan Toney overcame being not selected for the England team by scoring a brace, including the game-winning goal in overtime, to give Brentford a memorable 2-1 triumph versus Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The Brentford captain stunned the defending champions and left Arsenal in first place in the league at Christmas after being left out of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England team for Qatar. Toney had rightfully headed in the first goal in the 16th minute, but Foden equalised for the home team in the final seconds of the first half. Foden scored the equaliser for the home team in the last seconds of the first half after Toney had properly headed in the opening goal in the 16th minute.
Prior to Toney’s goal, Brentford ought to have taken the lead. In just the fourth minute, Ederson stopped Frank Onyeka from scoring as he broke through, and he subsequently had to block Toney’s close-range attempt.
