FIFA World Cup 2014 - Arjen Robben The Fastest Footballer in the World

Arjen Robben (Speed 37 kph)The Fastest Footballer in the World 

History Creator Arjan Robben became the fastest footballer in the history of Football after rapid sprint against Spain at 2014 World Cup when he clocked up top speed of 37 kilometer per hour.
On his way: Holland's Arjen Robben recorded the world's fastest ever sprint during a game

And gone! The Dutchman set a world record speed of 37km/h as he breezed beyond Sergio Ramos

Blowing Ramos (and defender Jordi Alba, back) couldn't keep up with Robben as he scored his second

The Real Madrid defender was left trailing in his wake as Robben stormed through; it appeared Ramos was leggy, only for FIFA statistics to later reveal that the 37km per hour sprint was the fastest ever recorded by a footballer.  Iker Casillas could then only watch as the Dutchman danced beyond him to score his second sumptuous goal of the night.
But while the finish was perfect in its execution, the foot race preceding it was even more impressive. Robben chased on to a ball from his own half, always half a yard ahead of Ramos, before finessing to slot beyond the goalkeeper.
