Top 10 Fastest Football Players In The World 2022

When we talk about the fastest football players in the world in 2022, we usually think of Kilian Mbappe, Mohammed Salah, Leroy Sane, or Raheem Sterling. But only two of the listed players are in the top 10 fastest footballers in the world. And none of the top 10 managed to at least repeat Arjen Robben’s record at the 2014 World Cup – 37 km/h.

When compiling the rating, we used the data of the football leagues in which the players play, the study of the Mexican club Pachuca together with FIFA, as well as FIFA statistics after the World Cup in Russia.

10 Fastest Football Players in The World

The top 10 includes four Premier League players, two La Liga players, and one each from Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Mexican MX League, and Brazilian Serie A.
