Ghanaian international Kamaldeen Sulemana was rated the most fastest player in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Despite, the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Hakim Ziyech, Valverde and Ronaldo all showing up at the Mundial, Ghana forward Kamaldeen Sulemana top them all with speed to get ranked the fastest at the tournament.

The Rennes winger hit a top speed of 22.18mph, the fastest at the 22nd edition of FIFA World Cup.

He hit this speed in Ghana’s Group H last game against Uruguay but could not help the Black Stars overturn their first half 2-0 defeat, which saw Ghana eliminated from the competition.

He explains how it happened. 

“I don’t think it was the canter attack, No”

“Running with the ball was different. But, I think there was a situation and I was tracking back when we were down 2-0 with almost 5 minutes to go and we were attacking and lost the ball, so i had to recover back because I saw a player who was free so I had to get there first before the player gets there”

“I think there was a sprint but I wasn’t even running that fast”, he told Owuraku Ampofo of TV3.

The youngster run faster than Nico Williams (22.12mph), David Raum (22.00mph), Antonee Robinson (21.99), and Daniel James (21.99mph).

Sulemana played just 58 minutes for the African giant’s at the global showpiece and will look forward to get more playing time with his club Rennes during the second half of the season.
