Being a pro soccer player requires technical skills, but being really, really fast also helps. Take this goal from Terens Puhiri in the Indonesian soccer league, which only required three touches of the ball to get down the entire field and score because Puhiri is so damn fast.
Standing at 5ft 5in, the highly rated player from Jayapura, Indonesia, isn’t the biggest but his incredible pace surely makes him one of the quickest players in world football right now.
During the 4-0 win against Mitra Kukar earlier this week, Puhiri showcased his lightning quick speed, tearing apart the opposition with a deadly counter attack.
Starting from around 30 metres, the 21-year-old covers a ridiculous amount of ground in the space of seconds.
Terens Puhiri then shows a great amount of composure by knocking the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper, using his incredible pace to his advantage. Seriously, how quick is this bloke?!
