Who has the best shooting technique in football? Well, one player has left England's Bukayo Saka and his teammates in awe.

Bukayo Saka has expressed his admiration for Ivan Toney's exceptional no-look penalty technique, which played a crucial role in England's Euro 2024 shootout victory over Switzerland.

The Three Lions will face the Netherlands in the semi-final, following a thrilling win over the Swiss.

After Saka's goal forced extra time, England won 5-3 on penalties, with Saka, Cole Palmer, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jude Bellingham, and Toney all scoring.

Bukayo Saka in awe of Toney's 'crazy' technique

Toney's penalty was particularly impressive, as he struck the ball into the corner while maintaining eye contact with the keeper throughout.

"When we see him in training and practicing it’s crazy he does the same thing," Saka said after the game.

"We’re all just in awe. I don’t know how you cannot look at the ball."

Luke Shaw, who made his comeback from injury as a late substitute, added: ‘I cannot believe it to be honest.‘It’s crazy there’s one replay where you look back and watch just his face and it’s mad, I saw it this morning and it’s crazy.’

England face the Netherlands for a place in what would be their second appearance at a major final in 4 attempts.

Perhaps, Toney will be required to step up again.
