If you're pacy and have the ability to maintain your speed with a football at your feet then the football world is yours for the taking. They're a rare breed. You can normally find these nimble sprinters on the left or right flank and regardless if they can cross well or score goals, they will cause full-backs a large amount of problems due to their blistering pace and energy. Some try to kick them, others sit back and give them room to drive forward rather than dive in and the majority receive an early booking for a cheeky tug on the sprightly player's shirt and spend the rest of the game perpetually terrified. Having a rapid player on FIFA is a wonderful experience, simply slot a through ball in behind the opponents' full-back and watch him go. Although if their dribbling skills don't quite match their frightening pace, it's sometimes counter-productive and can result in an opposition counter-attack. This list will address the fastest players on FIFA 16 and with many of the players plying their trade outside of Europe, it could be the introduction of some potential future superstars. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo did not make the list as their rating of 92 wasn't good enough to feature inside the top 15. Ladies and gentleman its time to pick your speed. Heres the 15 fastest players on FIFA 16 based on their pace rating
15. Juan Cuadrado (Juventus) - 93
Juan Cuadrado is the first player to make the top 15, edging out a number of other talented players who were also given a 93 pace rating. His overall FUT rating earns him a place on the list and the versatile winger will hope to rediscover his form at Juventus after being unable to break into the Chelsea first team.
