, the star of the French national football team, could not break a record set in his name in the previous edition of the World Cup that was held in Russia, represented by his recording of the fastest run in the World Cup, which at that time reached a speed of 37 kilometers per hour, contenting himself with the World Cup version in Qatar with a record of 35.2 kilometers per hour only.
According to the report of the newspaper ‘Foot Mercato’ ( footmercato ), only 13 players who competed in the World Cup in Qatar were able to exceed the speed of 35 kilometers per hour during the World Cup, and the list of the fastest 10 players knew many surprises.
Before the start of the competitions, all eyes were on the trio Mbappe, the star of the “Roosters” team, and his colleague in Paris Saint-Germain, Moroccan Ashraf Hakimi, who is considered one of the fastest players in the world, along with Canadian Alfonso Davis, the German star of Bayern Munich.
Disappointing number for Mbappe
The record held by Mbappe was set in the 4-3 Argentina match from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, when he ran quickly at a speed of 37 kilometers per hour, and no Argentine defender was able to catch up with him.
But in the current version, the fastest run of the French star did not exceed 35.2 kilometers per hour, and that was in the “Roosters” match against Denmark in the group stage, which the French team decided in its favor 2-1, and carried the double signature of Mbappe.
According to the French newspaper, the logical explanation for this decline for Mbappe is his inability to obtain larger spaces and impose close control on him by the opponent.
But despite that, Mbappe managed to achieve the most important thing, which is to score goals, and the evidence is that he scored on 8 occasions, and he won the top scorer award.
Hakimi’s new number
There is no doubt that he is one of the fastest in the world, and one of the most attention-grabbing players during the World Cup in Qatar, and despite many attempts he made with the Moroccan national team, he did not top the list of fastest in the World Cup.
According to the same source, the Moroccan star ranked seventh in the list of the fastest players in the World Cup in Qatar, after the “radar” recorded his run at a speed of 35.3 kilometers per hour, and that was in the match against Croatia in the opening match of the World Cup.
What about Davis?
The Canadian star in the ranks of Bayern Munich impressed with his teammates, despite their early exit from the competition, and stole the spotlight again with his super speed.
Despite this, he was not the fastest in this session and settled for second place after he ran at a speed of 35.6 kilometers per hour in the group stage match against Croatia, which witnessed his signature on the first goal in the history of Canada in the World Cup.
Here is the list of the fastest in the World Cup in Qatar:
10- Serbian Nemanja Radonic: 35.2 km/h
9- Frenchman Kylian Mbappe: 35.2 km / h
8- Senegalese Ismaila Sarr: 35.3 km/h
7- Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi: 35.3 km/h
6- American Anthony Robinson: 35.4 km / h
5- Welshman Daniel James: 35.4 km/h
4- Germany’s Daniel Romm: 35.5 km/h
3- Spaniard Neco Williams: 35.6 km/h
