Top 50 Fastest Football Players In The World

The modern game has introduced many changes to the way in which football clubs set about winning matches, including the evolution of tactics and formations, state of the art facilities and equipment as well as sport science to ensure that conditioning is as effective as possible.
With the margins between the elite sides in world football so fine, pure speed can often tilt the balance, which is why it is desired so much by scouting networks around the world, often being attributed to the bulk of certain players’ valuation, especially when breaking into first teams.
Here are 50 of the fastest players in world football. I have aimed to put together a list that best provides a combination of both sprinting ability, acceleration and speed with the ball.

  1. Where is Karim Benzema, Antonio Valencia, Tevez, Di Maria? Focus on speed with quality & you only find those in top teams. If a player is good he will surely take a leap to the top sides, they will come knocking.

  3. many epl team scared united when giggs play at leftwing..he can crush defender for assist or own gol..becoz that he ferguson take him at the 17 years old in senior team and be a real legend now..he must be at this list..RYAN GIGGS all the way..

  4. I think Ashley Cole, Ramires, Valencia, Gael Clichy and Phil Jones should make that list. I totally agree that Theo Walcott is the fastest.
