The Fastest Players On FIFA 19 Will Cause Some Serious Damage

Though FIFA 19 does focus a lot more on passing and link-up play, you just can't beat a bit of pace and after the fastest players list was revealed, we now know who will be proper sweaty to play with and against this year.

Ronaldo Nazario's 96-rated Icon card is the fastest player on Ultimate Team, with 'O Fenomeno' given 97 in his second year back in the FIFA franchise.

Pele, Eusebio and Marc Overmars are also legends with pace to burn on FIFA 19, but excluding them, it's PSG and France hot-shot Kylian Mbappe and Wolves' Adama Traore who share the 'joint-fastest player' moniker - with both darting past full-backs courtesy of their 96 pace.

Then there's renowned speedsters Leroy Sane, Gareth Bale and Douglas Costa on 95 pace - along with unknown quantity Jurgen Damm, a 75-rated right-midfielder for Tigres U.A.N.L in Mexico.

He could well be one of the gems on this year's game, along with 69-rated Kekuta Manneh on 94 pace, 61-rated Rashad Muhammad and 62-rated Doncaster Rovers winger Alex Kiwomya who all fall in the same category.

You can find the full list of the speed merchants over at Fut Head, while YouTuber MattHDGamer put together an XI from the fastest player in each position in the following video:

Matt had some hands on time with the beta version of the game a few weeks back and picked up on an a nifty speed boost that looks to be deadly if you pull it off, but will send you completely raging mad if you're defending against it.

It's a fake shot combination, with Matt saying it's as simple as holding LB, pressing B then A in quick succession before moving the left stick in whichever direction you wish to go in.

If PlayStation 4 is your console of choice, hold L1, press circle and square and finish off with the movement of the left analog stick.

It seems to work with any fast player on FIFA, as you bypass defenders with ease - but the key is making sure there's enough space between the opposition player for it to work effectively.
