A 22-year-old Norwegian midfielder eclipses Theo Walcott as the speed king of FIFA. Read on to find out who, writes GMS Academy member Mohamed Ismail.

EA's most recent rendition of the universally acclaimed FIFA series throws up a bucket of surprises, with the exclusion of Arjen Robben and only one big-name superstar in the top 20. 

As a gauge of speed, acceleration (rather than sprint speed) has been used as a standard measure. However, should two players share a similar acceleration rating, sprint speed will be used to decided the superior sprinter. In the case of further contradiction, the outcome will be decided by their respective overall ratings.

The 20 fastest players in FIFA 14:

1. Mathis Bolly (Fortuna Dusseldorf) - Acceleration: 97 - Sprint speed: 97

2. Theo Walcott (Arsenal) - Acceleration: 97 - Sprint speed: 96

3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - Acceleration: 96 - Sprint speed: 95
