Kylian Mbappe is the world's quickest player, surpassing Aubameyang. The 2018 World Cup winner was able to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds during a practice session for France before their quarter-final match against Argentina. This beats the previous record held by Germany's Mario Götze, who reached the same speed back in 2014.
Aubameyang is also very fast, hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. He achieved this result in August 2017 at a special track in Russia's Yaroslavl where footballers meet once a year to test themselves against time. The next meeting will be in March 2019 in Sochi.
Mbappe and Aubameyang are not only fast but they're also very talented players. Both have been named in France's squad for this summer's World Cup in Russia where they will face Argentina, Belgium, Brazil and Uruguay in the group stage.
36 km/h for Kylian Mbappe With a peak speed of 36 km/h, Kylian Mbappe was awarded the world's quickest football player in 2020. The Paris Saint-Germain star has already made history by becoming only the second teenager after Pele to score 100 goals in international matches.
Mbappe isn't the first superstar to break the record held by Brazil's Zico and Italy's Giuseppe Meazza. In fact, he only holds this title because he is also the youngest player to achieve this feat at 17 years and 301 days old. He became famous at an early age when he started appearing in official videos for PSG before he even turned 18. Since then, he hasn't stopped breaking records: in 2019, he became the first player to score twice in a World Cup match when he scored both goals against England during France's opening game of the year.
Before becoming a professional footballer, Mbappe was regarded as one of the best young players in France. In 2014, he moved to PSG from Le Havre and immediately became part of the squad. That same year, he made his debut for the French national team in a friendly match against Australia. He has since become one of the most important players for Les Bleus, scoring 15 goals in 69 appearances.
Kylian Mbappe has been named the world's quickest player by French daily newspaper Le Figaro, ahead of players such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Leroy Sane. The 18-year-old striker was quoted by the paper as saying that he wanted to be known as "the new Michael Jordan".
He also told Le Figaro that he aims to earn €1 million a year after his current contract with Monaco expires in 2019. The club are thought to be willing to offer him a new deal worth around £200,000 a week.
Mbappe is currently on loan from Monaco until 2018, with the option to make the move permanent next summer. He has scored 14 Ligue 1 goals this season, helping his side to second place behind Paris Saint-Germain.
The announcement comes just over a month after former France international Zlatan Ibrahimovic was named the world's best player by France's L'Equipe magazine. Mbappe, who made his debut for France in October 2016, said at the time that he was not surprised by the award given his love for scoring goals.
"I didn't think much of it at first but then when I saw the number of goals he had scored I realised how amazing it was," he said.
FIFA 21's quickest players Kylian Mbappe's peak speed was 10.6 meters per second, which put him ahead of Real Madrid outcast—and prospective Tottenham signing—Gareth Bale's 10.3 meters per second.
Mbappe also has a sprint rating of 90, which means he's highly mobile for a player his size. Meanwhile, Bale's mobility score of 80 places him in the middle of the league.
When it comes to shooting, Kylian Mbappe is the man. The 18-year-old French striker scored with his first attempt on goal in FIFA 21, with a maximum speed of 30 m/s - twice that of teammate Antoine Griezmann. He also had the highest accuracy score among all players featured in this episode, with 12 out of 13 shots hitting the target. Gareth Bale was close behind with a shooting accuracy of 11 out of 13.
When it comes to dribbling, no one can compete with Kylian Mbappe. The young French star has a very high agility rating of 9 out of 10, which allows him to turn sharply in tight spaces. He's also very strong, with a mass index of 98 kg and a power index of 8. He could easily beat most opponents when it comes to beating them 1-on-1.
Kylian Mbappe set a speed of 38kph versus Monaco, which is quicker than Usain Bolt's 100m world record.
However, the 100m world record has been improved upon many times since it was first broken in 2009. In fact, it has been done so many times that it is difficult to identify a true "record" anymore. The current men's world record is 9.77 seconds, set by American Justin Gatlin in an indoor meeting in Birmingham, England, on 14 January 2019. That means that Mbappe would have to improve his time by nearly two seconds to break the record.
It is worth mentioning that Gatlin himself admitted after breaking the record that he could not keep this up for more than one or two rounds. He said: "I'm not going to lie; I knew when I broke the record that it was only a matter of time before someone else broke it."
This shows that no human being is completely free from risk factors that can cause injury. Although it is unlikely that anyone will ever beat Mbappe's time, it is possible that a future version of himself could have health issues like a heart condition or asthma. This would make him unable to participate in sports that require a lot of endurance like running or cycling.
36.2 kmph The French tabloid Le Figaro has presented data to support their claim that Mbappe is the quickest player in the world today, with a peak speed of 36.2kmph (Bilbao's Inaki Williams is close behind with 35.7 kmph).
They based this on data from Sportcal, which recorded his time at 3m 38.91s during a training session on July 6th 2017.
If these figures are accurate, then they represent an increase of more than 3 kmph since we last heard about him in January 2018 when he was reported as having reached 33 kmph during a match against Germany.
This would place him above Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi but below Koke and Neymar.
It's worth mentioning that this figure was obtained after only two months of training so it can be expected that Mbappe will improve upon this rate over time.
Furthermore, since 2007 when Speedometer was first used in a professional football match, no other player has ever reached such high speeds. For example, Gareth Bale reached 30.5 kmph in 2013 but did not stay on the field for long enough to be considered for best speed records.
Since there is no official record for maximum speed, it is difficult to say if Mbappe is currently the fastest player in the world.
