Premier League wingers fill top two spots…
This FIFA list comprises of ten of the fastest top level players in world football. (Obviously not every player in every league in the world has had their speed clocked.)
10) Alexis Sanchez – Barcelona – 30.1 km/h
The Chilean flyer arrived for almost £30m in 2011, but has still not secured a guaranteed starting spot at the Nou Camp.
9) Arjen Robben – Bayern Munich – 30.7 km/h
The Dutchman has enjoyed spells at Chelsea, Real Madrid and now Bayern Munich, where he won an historic treble last season.
8) Franck Ribery – Bayern Munich – 30.7 km/h
The French attacker is one of the favourite to win the Ballon D’or this year.
7) Wayne Rooney – Manchester United – 32.1 km/h
Rooney is deceptively fast, and is back to his best form for a struggling United side this season.
6) Lionel Messi – Barcelona – 32.5 km/h
The world’s best player has scored 324 goals for Barcelona, and still only 26-year-old.
