Let's kick this article off with a nostalgic question. As a kid, what player's name did you call out as you rifled home a screamer from range?
For many of you reading this, the name "ROOONEY!" will have been uttered when the ball was walloped – or perhaps the screams of "GERRRARD!" echoed around your local park or playground.
And after the ball hit the back of the net, the Atletico Madrid loanee proceeded to celebrate by shouting: "Wheyyyyy. Harry Kane!"
It was a moment that got social media talking.
Why did Griezmann say Harry Kane? 😭 pic.twitter.com/Fcmw7aYL5d— Griezmann Chief 🇭🇺 (@griezmannility_) March 29, 2022
One Twitter user commented: "Griezmann is playing with Mbappe literally tonight but shouts 'Harry Kane' when he scores. Yet I’m meant to believe Mbappe is the best player in the world not Kane?"
Another said: "Even Griezmann is being influenced by Kane. He’s actually massive."
A third wrote: "Antoine Griezmann shouting "HARRY KANE" in a Scouse accent after scoring in training is the content you didn't know you needed today."
The 31-year-old, who is often seen playing FM while on international duty, was getting stuck into the Sports Interactive game ahead of last summer's European Championship.
In a video filmed on France's official channels, Griezmann can be seen on a plane with his laptop out while talking to colleague and fellow FM super-fan Ousmane Dembele about his achievements.

The 22-year-old's reaction was great. He says: "Newcastle, where? It's not very warm there eh?".
