The Tottenham striker scored seven goals in two games over the last week but was omitted from the game’s Team of the Week, much to his chagrin
Harry Kane has hit out at EA Sports after he was denied an in-form tag for the FIFA 17 Team of the Week.
Kane ended the season in red-hot form, scoring four goals in the 6-1 victory over Leicester City, prior to netting a hat-trick in the 7-1 thumping of Hull City on the final day.
However, EA Sports chose to give in-forms to Sergio Aguero, who scored twice against Watford, Alexandre Lacazette, who netted a brace against Nice, and Marco Reus, who also scored twice for Borussia Dortmund against Werder Bremen.
Kane subsequently sent a cheeky tweet to the makers of the world’s most popular football game, reading: “I’m guessing seven goals in two games wasn’t enough then.”

EA responded, however, pointing out that they issued him with a Team of the Season card — rated 94, and boasting 98 shooting — after his 29 goals in 30 games this season.
And the story had a happy ending, with Kane admitting that “all is forgiven”.
Spurs will be in action this Friday, facing Kitchee SC in a friendly in Hong Kong.
