FIFA Mobile: Top 5 fastest players in the game

Northampton Town v Fleetwood Town - Sky Bet League One

With the indomitable success of EA Sports' FIFA franchise on PC and console, EA delved into the mobile market with their hugely popular independent mobile game, FIFA Mobile, in the last quarter of 2016. There are 6 basic building blocks for every single player’s in-game stats. Of these, pace is one major building block in not only deciding a player’s market value but at times deciding a crucial match itself, because ever since times imaginable being fast on the PC game was basically what mattered. In every rendition of the main game, the creators have tweaked that fragile persona.

Pace in FUT is made up of two stats - acceleration and sprint speed. Acceleration is arguably the more important of the two, with the ability to burst away from an opponent being of paramount importance. Sprint speed, while important, is very surmountable in game - a player with 90 sprint speed and the ball at his feet is no faster than the opponent with 75 pace who is chasing him. However, there are other stats that contribute to pace - you need to have high balance, agility and reactions to feel fast in game, and traits such as speed dribbler that allow players to move much more quickly on the pitch than their stats suggest.

As a result, the pace card stat can be very deceptive - it only takes into account two of the many stats that affect how players feel in game,

With the latest edition of the annual Blockbuster title EA Sports FIFA 18 just around the corner, let’s examine the world of FIFA Mobile, for the top 5 speed merchants:

#5 Devante Cole (Fleetwood Town, EFL League One) – 114

Former England U19 international Devante Cole has been trying all his fledgling playing career to emulate his old man Andy Cole, not to great success though. Cole who was initially picked up by the blue side of Manchester at the age of 7, spent much of his teenage formative years out on loan at various lower leagues, before moving on to Bradford City and then to Fleetwood Town in 2016.

He is already on the scoresheet after two matches in the League One campaign. Cole is no way near to the tagline of a wonderkidd, but he is a ‘fast and lanky fellow’, as his previous managers described him.

#4 Gelson Martins (Sporting Lisbon, Liga NOS) – 114

Portugal v Andorra - FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier

One of the few prominent names on this list, This lad had 2 brilliant seasons leading to a place in the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia, where he featured from the bench a couple of times. Martins in real life might be overshadowed in pace by the flashy speedsters like Bale and Aubameyang, but on FIFA Mobile, he is a beast.

A pro tip, most of the times you’ll see his card appear in the transfer market in-game at cheap base rates, whatever the card type, get him in!

#3 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ( Borussia Dortmund, Bundesliga ) – 115

Real Madrid CF v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Champions League

A constant fixture in each and every Top 5 list there has ever been made. The Gabonese striker has a record of sprinting 30 meters in 3.7 seconds (speed 8.1 m/s) which is very close to Usain Bolt (speed 10.1 m/s).

The inclusion of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will surely increase the overall speed of your team, helping you control the field. The striker used to lead every version of the game in recent times, till now.

#2 Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC, Major League Soccer) – 115

Sporting Kansas City v Seattle Sounders

Enough of the flashy superstars, let’s move on to the Actual Top Speedsters, most of you might have never heard of Jordan Morris. He might be of the same age as me, but he is definitely a zillion time faster than me, for sure.

Picked up by none other than the great Jürgen Klinsmann. He is already a fixture in the US National Team and has a healthy goal scoring record for his club side.

#1 Tosaint Ricketts (Toronto FC, Major League Soccer) – 155

2016 MLS Cup - Seattle Sounders v Toronto FC

A relative unknown to the world, but a veteran in American shores. Never would you have guessed that the Fastest player in FIFA Mobile would come from a nation that is ranked 95 in the world.

in the latest FIFA rankings. He began with a career in short distance running, in Alberta and later featured in the Finnish and Norwegian leagues before settling down in his homeland, a real pocket dynamo. Use him, and your opponents won’t ever know what hit them!
