Meet 22-Year-Old Terens Puhiri, The Fastest Player In World Football?

Meet 22-Year-Old Terens Puhiri, The Fastest Player In World Football?

You probably haven't heard of Terens Puhiri, the 22-year-old winger who currently plays for Indonesian First Division side Borneo FC.

But after watching this incredible goal against Mitra Kukar, you might just remember his name.

Standing at 5ft 5in, the highly rated player from Jayapura, Indonesia, isn't the biggest but his outrageous pace has to make him one of the quickest players in world football.

During the 4-0 win against Mitra Kukar last season, Puhiri showcased his lightning quick speed, tearing apart the opposition with a deadly counter attack.

Starting from around 30 metres, the 22-year-old covers a ridiculous amount of ground in the space of seconds.

Puhiri then shows a great amount of composure by knocking the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper, using his incredible pace to his advantage.

Seriously, how quick is this guy?!

On the topic of fast players, Romelu Lukaku has claimed that he is the quickest player at Manchester United and surprisingly, the stats back him up on this occasion.

Stats provided by Opta via the Daily Mail show that the Belgian has the two quickest sprints for United this season.
