Who would have bet on that???

Gareth Southgate has picked Brentford's uncapped striker Ivan Toney in the squad for England's upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine.

Toney, 27, is the second-highest English goalscorer in the Premier League this season with 16 goals, behind Tottenham's Harry Kane.

However, he is facing a potential ban from the game after being charged  with 232 betting breaches in November and a further 30 in December.

England travel to Italy on 23 March and host Ukraine at Wembley on 26 March.
