The fastest players in the world in 2021

Football is not just about technique or tactics. You also have to know how to run fast. Like every end of the year, we update our Top 10 of the fastest players on the planet of football. Fasten your seatbelts.

We are often impressed by a dribble from elsewhere, an exceptional strike or a sensational save by a goalkeeper during a football match. But pure acceleration that makes all the difference in a big game is also spectacular. Do not say that you did not vibrate when Kylian Mbappé came up all the way in June 2018 against Argentina in the round of 16 of the World Cup. Or when Gareth Bale dropped the hapless Marc Bartra in 2014, during the Copa del Rey final, even allowing himself to go out of bounds. Well his moments of madness are also timed and we have, as you are now used to, recap the greatest feats of speed in a Top 10.

The two examples cited above (Kylian Mbappé and Gareth Bale) are obviously part of this classification. We even find the French three times, he who connects the performances at high speed. After 2018, he was flashed at 38 km / h in April 2019 during a French championship meeting with Paris Saint-Germain, against his former club, Monaco. Rebelote this summer during Euro 2020 (postponed to 2021 because of the Covid) when the tricolor genius deposited poor Mats Hummels during the match of the 1st round Germany-France. Which puts Mbappé, at best, in second position in this ranking. Other football stars are present. Cristiano Ronaldo, Achraf Hakimi, Alphonso Davies or Arjen Robben have reached crazy speeds in recent years.

We also find in this Top 10, Dimitri Oberlin and Youcef Atal, who were already present last year. The former has been somewhat lost since his feat in the group stage of the 2018 Champions League with FC Basel. The Swiss striker is now playing at Servette Geneva when he was one of the most promising youngsters of his generation. For Atal, back from a serious injury, the speed is still there as we can continue to see with Nice in our Ligue 1. From now on, up to 2022 and all the men mentioned here will perhaps have the opportunity to to dethrone King CR7 in this ranking. See you in a year for the balance sheet.
