Theo Walcott and Harry Kane were both handed starting chances for England against Estonia - but only one took it.
In form Arsenal forward Walcott carried over his club form, netting his eight international goal of his career, while Kane struggled in the lead striker role.
So it was with some surprise that England manager Roy Hodgson decided to substitute Walcott late in the game to bring on Leicester's Jamie Vardy, and left Kane on the field.
Kane had managed just one shot during the 90 minutes, as opposed to Walcott who had five efforts at goal. The Arsenal man also had more touches than Kane (47-36), and completed 92 per cent of his passes, compared to Kane's 74 per cent.
Both strikers were auditioning for regular football alongside record goalscorer Wayne Rooney, who had been left out as a precaution with an injury.
Here is a look at what fans had to say at the moment Walcott was hooked...

Harry Kane is still on? And we've taken Walcott off instead. Odd decision.— Steve Chappell (@AFChappell) October 9, 2015
