Ivan Toney's Penalty Technique Revealed

England and Brentford striker Ivan Toney has shared the secret behind his incredible "no-look" penalty technique, which has left fans and goalkeepers alike in awe. In a Premier League Masterclass, Toney explained to Michael Owen how he executes his spot kicks with precision and confidence.

Toney's approach is unconventional, to say the least. He takes a slow run-up, never looks at the ball, and waits for the goalkeeper to make the first move. If the keeper doesn't budge, he'll place the ball on either side. But if the keeper dives, Toney will slot it into the opposite corner.

The striker credits Paul Pogba's penalty technique as an inspiration and has refined his approach over time. After missing a penalty early in his career, Toney reevaluated his strategy and adopted the "no-look" method, which has since yielded a 92% success rate in the Premier League.

Toney's penalty expertise has made him a valuable asset for both Brentford and England, and his unique technique continues to fascinate fans and pundits alike.
