Roy Hodgson's 24-man England squad, named for the upcoming friendlies with the Netherlands and Germany, was released on Thursday and it has already generated plenty of debate.
While there was joy for uncapped Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater, Watford striker Troy Deeney's hopes of earning a place on the plane for Euro 2016 look to have taken another blow.
The decision has already caused a stir, with Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores insisting the 27-year-old deserved a place in the squad.
He told Club Call: "For us he is very important - he is one of the leaders and main players in the squad.
"He is doing well. I respect Roy Hodgson and he has the idea to pick the best players in the squad, but Troy Deeney is doing very well in English football."
But it wasn't just Deeney's club coach who was surprised with Hodgson's decision, with a number of fans taking to Twitter to share their feelings.
Deeney offers much more than Walcott, less injury prone, creates more, delivers more. Another poor call by Hodgson. Still club over country— Rich (@RichSmiiSmith) March 17, 2016
@talkSPORTDrive I'm an arsenal fan and I would have deeney over Walcott all day long. Walcott no direction no ability. Clueless— Lee Withey (@LeeWithey4) March 17, 2016
Still don't get why Deeney isn't near the England side. Holds the ball up top better than anyone else we have #England— Michael Jabbari (@mike1983jabbari) March 17, 2016
