As mentioned in the last slide, Ronaldo's top speed of 21.11 mph at the 2018 World Cup was tied for the fastest of any player.

Who was he tied with?

Croatian winger Ante Rebic.

While he's not quite the household name Ronaldo is, Rebic performed beautifully during the tournament, helping lead Croatia to their first World Cup Final.

Considering he's 10 years Ronaldo's junior, Rebic may have even more speed left in those legs.

Rebic currently stars for Eintracht Frankfurt of the German Bundesliga, though his recent rise has drawn the attention of several larger clubs.
