Bukayo Saka has delighted Arsenal fans by cropping Harry Kane out of a picture of himself during England's 2-0 defeat to Belgium.
Saka's rise to prominence took another major step on Sunday when he replaced Ben Chilwell to make his first competitive appearance for England in the Nations League clash.
And the Arsenal ace was one of England's most impressive performers as he combined well with Jack Grealish and looked to get forward in the second half.
Saka's influence was illustrated by the number of Belgium players who paid close attention to the teen star and in one moment, in particular, he was marked by Axel Witsel, Thomas Meunier and Toby Alderweireld.
Saka used an image of that moment in a post on social media, saying: "Didn’t go the way we wanted it to last night but lots of positives to take from the game.
"On a personal note, I’m very happy to play my first competitive game for @england which I hope is the first of many more to come!"
But eagle-eyed fans spotted that in a wider frame of that image, England skipper Harry Kane was close by and Saka had chosen to cut him out of the picture.

Given the rivalry between Arsenal and Spurs, Saka's cropping skills made one section of north London happy.
One fan wrote: "Harry Kane cropped out by God's child himself. We're happy."
While another dubbed Saka's actions as: "Elite mentality."
It remains to be seen whether Saka intended to cut Kane out of the picture but speaking last week the Arsenal player named the striker as someone who made him feel welcome in the senior squad.
"All the boys have been so good with me from the first minute I came in," Saka said.
"Harry Kane put his arm around me, he spoke to me and asked me how I was. For him to do that, it helped me settle in much quicker and made me feel comfortable to be myself around everyone.
"That helps me not just off the pitch but also on the pitch too, because I feel like I can be myself, express myself and play with the confidence that I play with back at my club."
