Harry Kane - 91 - IF
5.0
Worth the money!
By Scavengerdude1, 01-12-2018

Purchased him for 140k during the hype shortly after the release of the guaranteed TOTW sbc and I must say, even if the price was 100k more, I would still happily purchase him.

Previously this year I have tried Aguero, Aubameyang and IF Arnautovic, but there was something missing, either they were too weak or their shooting seemed a little off. However I think I've finally found the perfect player for my play style. (Using a target man to hold it up and release the quick wingers)

Shooting: 10/10 Absolutely unstoppable. Used him with a hunter which gave him 99 finishing 98 shot power and 99 attack positioning means he's always in the right position to slap the ball into the net. 85 longshots also means his finesse shots are decent. Frequently in FUT Champs, he has been an absolute game changer getting 45 goals in 35 matches.

Pace: 7/10 With a hunter he has 82 pace which for the role I use him in is decent. He's quicker than most centre backs which is a lifesaver if a misplace a pass or play it into space.

Dribbling: 8/10 93 Reactions is incredible and the ball feels like it's glued to his feet which is extremely useful if I want to create space.

Physical: 9/10 78 Jumping is decent, usually wins the ball off of a long goal kick and his 86 heading means if he does get an opportunity off in the air you know where it's heading. His 85 strength is also a big positive as it enables him to effectively back into the defender without running the risk of losing the ball.

Often prone to taking a heavy first touch, however I'm not too sure if this is his fault or the game mechanics.

Passing: Although it is rated 81 I find his passes are frequently intercepted by the opposition full-backs, once again I'm not too certain if this is me or the game mechanics

I have always been a fan of Kane on FIFA. On previous games, I've owned pretty much every IF he's ever had (including his TOTY and TOTS cards). Therefore, when he finally got an in-form, I just had to try it. To contextualise a bit, I play him in BPL squad. Before him, I had used all the main BPL strikers (Lukaku normal and IF, aguero normal and UCL, Lacazette normal and IF, Auba normal), which has helped me to make a more valid comparison. The reason I've kept Kane is simple: if he has even the slightest chance, he will score it. More on this below.


I have used a Hunter on him and I can already hear people screaming "WHAT A WASTE!!?? He doesn't need a shooting boost." Maybe. But I won't come into your house and tell you where to put your furniture. Besides, who doesn't want 99 shooting?

Pace: You know what you're getting with Kane. He's obviously not the fastest striker. He's not slow but don't expect to gas past defenders. Most times, even if he has a few yards on them, he'll be caught him. He has the strength to keep the off (I have scored a handful of goals holding L2 and shoving off defenders) but if you're the sort of person who plays over the top through balls and expects to be one-on-one with the keeper, this isn't going to happen often with Kane. As mentioned, I use a Hunter on him which helps but he's obviously not the fastest. 7/10


Shooting: I have always been a player obsessed with the finishing stat and this is probably why I've always loved Kane. 95 finishing without any chem style is magical. But what makes this card a true sorcerer is his positioning (94 without any chem). Put it simply: Kane will not miss. He just won't. If he has a clear-cut chance, he will score. In fact, to call it a chance is incorrect because this implies there is no certainty. This is where Kane wins it for me compared to all other strikers. He will just always score. After 30 games, he was on 50 goals and 25 assists. He will score finesse, driven shots, near, far, wherever. He just scores (both in Div Rivals and WL). He's a monster.


This is all you need to know really. Defending, who cares? Passing (see the stats on assists above). Physical (see above).

Pace a little.
