Top 10 fastest football players in the world

A key part of being a successful footballer in the modern game is speed. We seem to be moving away from the days when having a strong striker to hold up the ball against defenders was important. Now, being able to turn away at speed and beat a defender for pace can tip the balance in the closest of games.

But who are the 10 fastest footballers on the planet at the moment? The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are renowned for their blistering pace, but there are a few lesser known names that make the list.

Gareth Bale

Real Madrid’s most expensive signing was always going to make the top 10. The Welshman’s goal against rivals Barcelona in the 2014 Copa Del Ray final will go down in history as one of the best ever. He flew past Marc Bartra on the halfway line, hitting speeds of just under 35 km/h before sliding the ball into the net.

Theo Walcott

Arsenal’s flying winger is well known for being one of the fastest in the game. The 27-year-old has been terrorizing Premier League defenses since he burst onto the scene as a teenager 10 years ago. He’s been recorded topping speeds of 34 km/h over the years.

Raheem Sterling

Sterling made headlines in 2015 when he became the most expensive Englishman ever, transferring from Liverpool to Manchester City for a fee worth up to £49 million. He has the potential to become one of the world’s best players over the next few years, and burning defenders with his pace is one of his top attributes. He’s been recorded topping speeds of 35 km/h.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Inevitably, Madrid’s most famous galactico makes the list. Since joining from Manchester United in 2009, Ronaldo has won it all. La Liga, Champions League, Copa Del Ray and Super Cup glory with his club, along with a European Championship win with Portugal in 2016 cemented his status as one of the best ever. He’s the complete player, with physical and technical ability. He’s strong but still one of the fastest in Europe, and hits speeds of 33 km/h regularly.

Gabriel Agbonlahor

He’s not exactly a household name, but Agbonlahor is one of the fastest players in the English second division. He’s a one club man, which is rare these days. He came through Aston Villa’s youth academy and broke into the first team in 2005. 11 years later, and Agbonlahor is still in the frame at Villa. He doesn’t feature as regularly as he may hope, but he is one of the fastest in the Championship. Like Ronaldo, he can sprint at speeds of up to 33 km/h.

Antonio Valencia

He may be sidelined through injury at the moment after picking up a knock against City in the EFL Cup, but Valencia will be back blazing through defenses again soon. The makeshift right-back is one of the fastest in the world, let alone in his position and can top 35 km/h when bombing down the wing.

Arjen Robben     

Despite being 32-years-old, Robben is still one of the fastest in the world. Two years ago against Spain at the World Cup, the Dutch winger clocked speeds of 33 km/h, the fastest ever recorded in the tournament. Even though he’s one of the oldest on the list, he’s still one of the fastest.

Aaron Lennon

Everton’s Lennon is another of the lesser-known names on the list. Only well known in England, Lennon had spells with Leeds United and Tottenham before moving to Merseyside. Over the years, he’s clocked some high sprint speeds and hit just under 34 km/h earlier this year.

Ross Barkley

Barkley is the second Everton player on the list, and perhaps the most surprising. The English midfielder is not renowned for his blistering pace and is more known for his power and strength. But the 22-year-old has hit speeds of over 32 km/h and has plenty more to give in his career.

Lionel Messi

No top 10 list would be complete without Messi. He’s the best in the world, and arguably the best ever. He’s won everything on offer for his club, multiple times. The Barcelona forward, like Ronaldo, has it all and more. His speed with the ball is unmatched, and Messi can top 32 km/h when cutting through Spanish defenses.
