Gareth Bale ‘The Cannon’

Wales star Gareth Bale earned the nickname ‘The Cannon’ because his left foot generates ridiculous shot power. In addition to his incredible power, he has blistering pace and a Mexican study found the Welshman to be the fastest footballer in the world according to his maximum recorded speed of 36.9km per hour.

Bale’s career has been hampered by injuries, however when fit and healthy he is one of the elite footballers in the world.

Bale demonstrated his speed in his most famous goal against Barcelona in the final of the 2014 Copa del Rey.
