I never look at the ball to take a penalty

According to Eviralnews, Toney scored England's fourth penalty in the shoot-out that put the Three Lions on the verge of another semi-final. He did not start the game from the beginning, but he came on in the second half of extra time in place of Harry Kane, who had to leave the field due to a muscle cramp.

Without looking at the ball, Toni scored his penalty, keeping his eyes completely focused on the goal and Swiss goalkeeper Jan Sommer. He insists he feels no pressure, as this has always been his habit of taking penalties.

Tony said: “I didn't feel much pressure. I always have my routine, I just focus and do what I always do: take some time and send the ball into the net. I never look at the ball. This is just my routine. Some people may find it crazy, but it's my usual habit and I'll stick to it. This method has worked and can be effective whenever needed.”


Clearly, Tony's style is efficient. According to TransferMarket, the Brentford star has scored 30 of the 32 penalties he has taken during his career. He has missed just once from the penalty spot in almost six years since October 2018.

With Kane expected to return for the semi-final, Toney is likely to return to the bench. But such has been his impact as a substitute this tournament that Gareth Southgate will have reason to use him again if England need a different approach.
