Harry Kane took the opportunity to hit back at old haters during a short interview at the FIFA 'Best' awards on Monday.
The striker was present for the prestigious ceremony alongside manager Mauricio Pochettino, and was picked out by presenter Layla Anna-Lee to say a few words.
She asked him whether he felt he could see his name up there with the best at next year's awards, to which Kane sarcastically replied: "I normally score tap-ins from inside the box so maybe not on that list!"
It was a good response from Kane who, remarkably, has had to take flak from critics about the nature of his goals over the past couple of seasons.
Incredibly, there is a minority that seem to think the 24-year-old is only good for scoring 'easy' goals from inside the area, despite evidence being available in abundance that this is simply not the case.
He has developed his game superbly over the past few seasons, and is arguably one of world football's top strikers now who is capable of scoring all types of different goals, and it is that notion which was probably in the back of his mind as the microphone was presented before him.
