FIFA 18: Harry Kane's FIFA 15 card shows how incredible his rapid rise has been
What's the story?
Harry Kane has been England's top striker for a few years now and has made huge progress in his game in recent times. The Tottenham man has been the Premier League's Golden Boot winner in the last two seasons and now stands as one of the best forwards in the world.
He has been rewarded for his fine displays by EA Sports as well, with his latest FIFA 18 card up there with the best and putting him in the Top 100 player ratings as well. After loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City, the Spurs man finally came into his own and has led the Tottenham line for the last three seasons.
His rise has been nothing short of mercurial and is best reflected comparing his ratings from FIFA 15, which had quite modest numbers, to say the least.
From a silver card and an overall rating of 68, the striker now has actually interchanged the two digits, with a gold card and a rating of 86.
In case you didn't know
Kane made his Tottenham debut in 2011 and after a few loan spells, it was in the 2014-15 season that he hit his stride and starting scoring on a regular basis. He was named the PFA Young Player of the Year that season and for the last two editions as well, he has been the top scorer in the English top flight.
The heart of the matter
The 24-year-old has some truly mesmerising attribute numbers this season, with an 82 shooting, 83 physical and 79 dribbling, which coupled with his aerial abilities and finishing, make him a lethal forward.
In stark contrast, his FIFA 15 numbers look hilarious in retrospect, which show how far he has come. While his pace remains static, his 69 shooting, 64 physical and 69 dribbling stats showcase how down below the ladder he was.
FIFA 18 is all set to launch later this month and the buildup to it is in full tilt. On the other hand, Kane has picked up form in the last few games and will look to build on his ever-growing reputation as well.
Kane's rise has been truly mesmerising and it is a great sight to see him in this position in the ratings.
