Ivan Toney among five players left out of England squad to face Italy in Nations League as star made to wait for debut | The Sun

IVAN TONEY will be left out of England's squad for tonight's clash in Italy along with four other stars.

The Brentford striker received his first Three Lions call-up last week after a brilliant start to the Premier League season with the Bees.

However, he will have to wait a little longer to make his England bow with the ace not even named on the bench for the Nations League game at the San Siro later.

Jordan Henderson, who replaced the injured Kalvin Phillips in the squad, will also play no part against the Azzurri.

And the pair are joined by Marc Guehi, Ben Chilwell while John Stones is also suspended after his red card in June against Hungary.

Toney, 26, will now be hoping that he gets his chance to impress at Wembley on Monday.

Gareth Southgate’s side take on Germany in their final Nations League group match in what will also be their last outing before the World Cup in November.

Toney, who has five goals in seven top-flight matches this term, revealed earlier this week that he was going into his first taste of England duty in high spirits.

He said: “I feel like I have full confidence in myself.

“I never played for any of the other age groups so going straight to the senior squad is a big achievement.
