Brentford boss Thomas Frank has declared Ivan Toney the best penalty taker in the world after his winner against Everton.

The forward continued his excellent record from 12 yards with a 19th successful spot-kick out of 20 attempts.

A fifth goal of the season for Toney occurred after a typically laid-back run-up to the 24th-minute kick, but his manager says he is a true example of practise makes perfect.

Frank said: “He is the world's best penalty taker and he proved it again against (Jordan) Pickford, who I think is a good keeper in terms of saving penalties.

“Goal, no problem and the good thing I like about Ivan is you need to be strong, composed and to have a personality where you like the pressure to take penalties. He is like this.

“But if you want to maintain your level at something, you need to practise it and he is practising every single day. That is why he is so good."
