Tottenham striker Harry Kane is discovering how quickly a player can go from being the darling of English football to just another face in the crowd of also-rans.
Having been in poor form for Spurs since the start of the season, many would argue that Kane was lucky to be called up by Roy Hodgson, but in Wayne Rooney’s absence, this would be a golden opportunity for him to get himself on the scoresheet and thus gain some much needed confidence.
England managed to see off the former Soviet block minnows thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Raheem Sterling, but fans were left disappointed by Kane, who was virtually non-existent throughout.
And it seems those on social media weren’t going to hold back either…

Last year the laws of thermodynamics couldn't stop Harry Kane, now he can be shackled with ease by two Estonian shepherds.

The problem with Harry Kane is that if he isn't scoring goals his contribution is zero.

If I was Harry Kane I'd give up football and just go back to being a Bruce Forsyth impersonator.
