Harry Kane struggles to hide disappointment after learning his FIFA 17 rating

'Half-Decent' was the verdict

Matt Tate

Although Harry Kane is yet to get off the mark for Spurs this season, the England striker finished the last campaign as the division’s top scorer, so he was more than entitled to think he’d be awarded an elite rating in FIFA 17.

Ratings are a pretty big deal to players these days; who wouldn’t want to score the perfect hat-trick with a virtual recreation of themselves?

It’s no surprise that when Copa 90 sat down with the Golden Boot winner to reveal his stats for this year’s iteration of the game, he was feeling confident.

But the 23-year-old couldn’t help but look slightly underwhelmed when he saw his Ultimate Team board for the first time.

Kane’s rating of 84 has actually risen by six from the 78 he had in FIFA 16, but he felt his shooting, defending and passing rankings left a lot to be desired.

After scoring 25 league goals last season he was adamant that his shooting should ‘definitely be in the 90s’. He was also unhappy to see his defending stats go down from the previous game, and felt the 71 on passing was harsh. In summary: not chuffed.

To top it all off, the exchange ended with the interviewer accidentally dropping the card on the striker’s foot. Oops.

Still, Tottenham fans should probably take heart from their star man’s begrudging acceptance of some of his FIFA 17 stats. After all, if there’s one thing Harry Kane loves doing, it’s proving the doubters wrong.
