Many have suggested Andros Townsend's performances in his two England outings displaced Walcott as a first-choice selection.
However, the more experienced Arsenal winger should still be the man to operate on the right-hand side for Roy Hodgson.
As impressive as Townsend's performances were - and they were very impressive - the Tottenham man doesn't deserve a place ahead of of a fully-fit Walcott - yet.
Granted, if the 22-year-old can maintain this form for a whole season, the situation may be different.
But suggestions that after two good games for England and a handful of starts for Spurs Townsend is more accomplished than Walcott are premature.
Former Southampton player Walcott netted a highly impressive 21 times last season.
The Arsenal forward assisted 11 Premier League goals last season - 10 more than Townsend - also finishing with 14 league goals.
Offering an option in behind with his incredible pace and off-the-ball movement, Walcott aids in England's attempts to quickly move from defence to attack.
Having arrived on the scene as a promising 16-year-old, and subsequently attending the World Cup aged 17, many fans are left feeling underwhelmed by the Arsenal player.
Yet his value to the team - and impressive statistics in an Arsenal shirt - can't be overlooked.
Should Townsend maintain his current form all season then Hodgson may even look to accommodate both wingers into his side, with the Tottenham player switching to the left flank.
However, should Townsend's form plateau, this wouldn't be the first English Tottenham winger that Theo Walcott has out-lasted - Aaron Lennon anyone?
