    Here's What Happened When English Footballer Harry Kane Labelled NFL Teams On A Map

    BuzzFeed met up with Tottenham striker Harry Kane and basically gave him a US geography exam.

    Premier League star Harry Kane is a big NFL fan, so we thought we'd put his US knowledge to the test.

    We asked Harry to label the location of some NFL franchises on a map of the US, and here's what happened...

    BuzzFeed

    (Yep, we basically gave Harry a US geography exam during his time off of training...)

    We started him off with the New England Patriots (the team he supports) – here's Harry's attempt:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: Nailed it.

    BuzzFeed

    Harry can hold his head high next time he goes to the Gillette Stadium.

    Next up, the San Francisco 49ers – here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: Damn close, but that's Nevada.

    BuzzFeed

    In defence of all UK folk, the US map is HUGE.

    New York Jets sits within a cluster of small(ish) states – here's what Harry went for:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: Not TOO far off...

    BuzzFeed

    East coast geography is either something you know, or something you will just never know.

    Jacksonville Jaguars – Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: That's Oklahoma, but considering the Jaguars seem pretty intent on moving to London, we can forgive Harry for this one.

    BuzzFeed

    Also, we just realised Florida has three teams...what's the deal with that?

    Next up are the Green Bay Packers (one of the most successful teams in Super Bowl history...we're told) – here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: Harry's put the Packers in the fine state of New York. Come on, Harry, you'll get the next one.

    BuzzFeed

    And the next one is the Miami Dolphins – Harry went for....

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: NAILED IT.

    BuzzFeed

    "HARRY! HARRY! HARRY!"

    And now for the Buffalo Bills – here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: That's the state of Wyoming (BuzzFeed UK had to google that), but to be fair to Harry, the Buffalo Bills do sound like they should belong in the West/Midwest somewhere.

    BuzzFeed

    Next up...the Pittsburgh Steelers – here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: That's Minnesota, rather than Pennsylvania, but again, we had no idea either.

    BuzzFeed

    Now, another team within a cluster of small US states, the Baltimore Ravens. Here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Harry's gone for North Carolina.

    Verdict: Flippin' close, good effort.

    BuzzFeed

    Can we talk about that logo for a second? Bloody terrifying...

    Finally, the Cleveland Browns (named after a TV character...) – here's Harry's guess:

    BuzzFeed

    Verdict: Well, Harry, you probably couldn't be much further out there, but we're sure America will forgive you.

    BuzzFeed

    In Harry's defence, despite not having perfect geographical NFL knowledge, he's pretty decent on the field. The New York Jets' Nick Mangold and the Kansas City Chiefs' Cairo Santos recently taught him a few things...
