Swansea City's Daniel James Is Genuinely One Of The Quickest Players In World Football
Daniel James introduced himself to the world on Sunday afternoon when he displayed a quite remarkable burst of pace during Swansea's FA Cup win against Brentford.
The 21-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Leeds in recent weeks, grabbed the headlines in the 53rd minute when he skipped past three players like they weren't even there.
This has to be one of the best counter-attacking goals you'll see this season.
Just check out the sheer pace of the lad. Incredible speed!
Who'd win a race between Daniel James and Kylian Mbappé? :anguished::fire:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) February 17, 2019
There was no stopping the 21-year-old on his way to goal.
Incredible pace! :zap: pic.twitter.com/Ay2aTunUVT
BT Sport went on to compare the youngster to Kylian Mbappe, of all people, and we can't disagree with that statement.
Graham Potter's Swansea side brushed past Brentford thanks to goals from Daniel James, Bersant Celina and an unfortunate own goal from Luke Daniels.
But the performance of this speedy winger has caused quite the reaction on social media.
