Over 30 meters on grass, Adama Traore fancies his chances against Usain Bolt.
The Wolves winger is equipped with a lethal FIFA 19 card. We're talking an insane 96 pace rating not to mention a cool 83 dribbling.
He's got so much belief in his speed, the 22-year-old reckons he can take the Jamaican sprint legend in a race.
"It is nice to be known on FIFA 19 as the fastest player in the world," he said about EA Sports honouring him with a spicy rating on their latest installment.

Before joking about having a rivalry with Bolt who made his professional football debut for Australian outfit Central Coast Mariners.
"But Usain Bolt has started playing for Central Coast Mariners so I might have a rival next season. Just remember, Usain didn't have to dribble a ball while he was winning his gold medals!
"Clearly Bolt would beat me over 100 metres on the track. But on grass, over 30 metres with a ball at my feet? I'm winning that race every time!
"It is completely different with a ball. I have trained with expert sprinters many times and they all agree running with the ball and running without the ball requires two completely different techniques.
"I was told I didn't have to lift my knees so high because I will never have to sprint 100 metres during a game."
The speedy Spaniard added: "I usually sprint for 20 to 30 metres - occasionally 50 to 60 metres maximum. But no footballer ever sprints a complete 100 metres during a game.
"Likewise, Bolt trains to last the full 100 metres - he doesn't adjust every five metres to keep a ball under control!"
Traore has mainly featured for his new side as a substitute. But he did bag a match winner against West Ham United in the Premier League.
