When I watch a soccer match, I always wonder who could be the fastest soccer player in modern era? May be you also like to wonder who is the fastest soccer player?
After a good research, I gathered a list of fastest soccer players at present who not only have the power of running fast but also to make a very good contribution for their team. They are fast in dribbling, passing, making an impact etc.
Here are the top 5 fastest soccer players in the world today. I tried to provide the names who have both sprinting ability, acceleration and speed with the ball.

3 – Theo Walcott – (32.8 km/hour)
He is actually the furius player of Arsenal and fans always have a question that, where would Theo Walcott be without his pace? Walcott’s pace is frightening at times and you wonder what an incredible player he could be if he was just able to develop some consistency with his end product. Though Walcott is trying to develop some other parts of his game in recent seasons.
2 – Arjen Robben – (32.9 km/hour)
Just like Walcott, it really is without any surprising which Robben is actually in this list. One more vintage winger, he could be by far the very greatest with conquering his man, after which offering the right ball or shot. This man could easily get in to any team on the planet, then there is not just a opponent on the planet who’d desire to fall into line in opposition to him!
