With a speed of 95, Daniel James is listed as the joint-second quickest player in the current edition of the famous football simulator. Only Kylian Mbappe, Adama Traore, and Alphonso Davies outperform the Manchester United winger, who has an overall rating of 77. (96 pace).
James first appeared on the scene in 2015 when he was recruited by Real Madrid from Atlético Madrid. Since then, he has gone on to make over 50 appearances for his club team. The 21-year-old has also represented England at every level from under-16 to under-21, scoring 14 goals.
He is considered one of the fastest players in world football and has been praised for his ability to dribble past opponents. Daniel James' speed makes him perfect to play as a wing back but he can also play as a forward if needed.
His peak rating of 96 makes him the second fastest player after former Barcelona star Dani Alves (97). It's interesting to note that both James and Mbappe are listed as forwards on FIFA 18. Perhaps it's because they are so fast that they can run all over the field? Either way, they are two of the most exciting prospects in football today and it will be fun to see which player comes out on top: James or Mbappe.
According to Opta statistics, Marcus Rashford was United's quickest player in seven of this season's 12 Premier League games, while James was the fastest in the other five. During last Sunday's triumph over Brighton, 10 almost matched that amazing speed, sprinting at 36.15 km/h. Only three players reached 30 km/h: Jesse Lingard (35), Anthony Martial (34) and Romelu Lukaku (33).
Rashford has more goals than anyone else (12), but it is James who has been involved in more shots on goal (56). The Englishman also has more assists (10) than his teammate.
They are different players with different attributes, but what they have in common is their ability to score goals. Maybe that's why Sir Alex Ferguson used to call them "the little magician" and "the fast one".
I think they are both very good players and it's only matter of time before they become even better. They already know a lot about this game and I believe they will keep getting faster as they get older.
Kylian Mbappe is one of the game's fastest players, but Alphonso Davies has also demonstrated his speed since joining Bayern Munich. Prior to Sunday's final, Kingsley Coman, who has played with both players, contrasted them. Don't get me wrong, Mbappe is quick, but Alphonso Davies is much faster. He's a special player.
Coman explained that although Kylian Mbappe is very fast, he isn't the fastest on Earth. Then again, neither is Alphonso Davies. The Canadian international joined Bayern Munich at the age of 17 and is already playing in Germany's Bundesliga. Before joining Toronto FC in January 2018, he spent two seasons with Bayern's reserve team. During that time, he scored 15 goals in 41 appearances.
Davies was born in Ghana and moved to Canada when he was two years old. He has been a Canadian citizen since 2014 and will be representing his country in Russia this summer. He will not be available for selection until after the World Cup due to MLS regulations.
When they first appeared on the scene, people compared Davies to Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba because of their speed. But while Messi and Pogba are good runners, they are not considered world-class athletes. They have better control of the ball than Davies and are more skilled players too.
By contrast, Davies is a pure runner. He has great acceleration and can beat many opponents one-on-one.
Last month, The Sun compiled a list of the world's top ten quickest players based on game performance statistics, with some startling findings. Kylian Mbappe clocked a high speed of 10.6 meters per second, beating out Real Madrid outcast—and upcoming Tottenham signing—Gareth Bale, who clocked 10.3 meters per second.
However, when it came to total goals scored, Bale proved himself to be the better player, scoring 26 goals in just 31 games for his club, the Spurs. Mbappe, on the other hand, managed only nine goals in 30 matches for Paris Saint-Germain.
It's worth mentioning that both players are phenomenal talents and it's not surprising that they make the list. What is surprising is that neither player is French! Bale is Welsh and Mbappe is Haitian-French.
Mbappe is considered by many to be the best player in the world right now, so it's no wonder that he's listed here as one of the fastest players in the world. He has won several awards this year, including the Best Young Player award at the UEFA Champions League final in May and the Ballon d'Or prize as the world's best player last month.
Bale also has several awards to his name, such as the Footballer of the Year award from the British football magazine, Sky Sports, and the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.
According to a German research, Cristiano Ronaldo is the quickest top player in football. Ronaldo outperforms Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben (32.9 kph), Arsenal's Theo Walcott (32.7 kph), Manchester United's Wayne Rooney (32.6 kph), and Arsenal's Robin Van Persie (32.6 kph).
Ronaldo can run 100 meters in 11 seconds flat and has a speed of 38.5 kilometers per hour. He plays for Portugal national team and is known as the "king of dribbling."
Arjen Robben began his career with Groningen before joining Bayern Munich in 2004. He was named German Footballer of the Year in 2011 after scoring 22 goals in all competitions. The 32-year-old plays as a winger or forward.
Theo Walcott started his career with Southampton before moving to Arsenal in 2006. He scored 51 goals in four seasons for the Gunners and was named Player of the Year in 2009. The 28-year-old plays as a striker.
Wayne Rooney started his career with Everton before joining Manchester United in 2004. He is one of the most successful players in England with 5 Premier League titles, 3 FA Cups, 1 UEFA Champions League, and 1 FIFA World Cup title.
36 km/h for Kylian Mbappe With a peak speed of 36 km/h, Kylian Mbappe was declared the world's quickest football player in 2020, much to everyone's astonishment. He achieved this milestone by beating Kevin Durant's time from 2015 when he burst into the public eye with his insane dribbling skills as a teenager at Monaco. Although many have since been caught by surprise by this news, it isn't the first time that someone has broken the 40-km/h barrier while playing soccer.
Mbappe is only the latest in a long line of players who have beaten Kevin Durant's record. In fact, there are so many people who have gone over 40 km/h that it's difficult to list them all! The most famous ones include Ronaldinho and Diego Maradona.
Some people may wonder why we need to know how fast someone is if they're only going slow enough to be caught by accident during TV shows or sports events. The truth is that scientists use player velocity to study and understand human movement on a global scale. They measure the length of a player's foot strike during a sprint, for example, which allows them to estimate their maximum speed. As well as seeing how fast some top athletes can run, they also use these measurements to develop technologies such as Nike's "Kinetic Energy Recovery System" (KERS).
