FIFA 20: Fastest Strikers (ST)

No one on FIFA 20 has a chance against these speedster strikers (ST) and forwards (CF)


In FIFA 20, speed continues to be one of the most influential attribute rating sets. If you have a speedster striker, you’ll find yourself in on goal regularly – particularly against teams that play a high backline. 

Having a faster forward on your team makes it much easier to capitalise on through balls and long balls over the top, catching out defenders and getting in on goal. 


Having a highly-skilled passer playing in the midfield behind the fastest strikers in FIFA 20 can help you to make the most of these players. But then again, some of them as so fast that any ball up the field could see them breakthrough one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Finding an average rating of the three core speed attributes in FIFA 20 – acceleration, sprint speed, and agility – we’ve established the fastest strikers (ST and CF) in FIFA 20. Some of them prefer to play out wide but still have strong overall ratings in the striker position. 

So, here are FIFA 20’s fastest strikers (ST) to sign on Career Mode. 

See table at bottom of page for a list of all the fastest strikers on FIFA 20

Kylian Mbappé (Speed Score: 94.7)

Overall: 89
Team: Paris Saint-Germain
Age: 20-years-old
Preferred Position: Striker
Skill Moves: Five-Star
Preferred Foot (Weak Foot): Right (Four-Star)
Nationality: French

It’s hard to believe that Kylian Mbappé is still only 20-years-old, having broken out in 2016/17 with AS Monaco. People raised eyebrows at the convoluted, loan-to-buy move to Paris Saint-Germain worth €180 million (£151 million), but it looks to be worth every penny and then some now. 

Over 102 games for PSG, Mbappé already has 72 goals and 37 assists. The winger has also notched 13 goals and ten assists for the French national team to become the country’s talisman. 

Now the face of Paris Saint-Germain and a World Cup-winning hero for France, the 20-year-old boasts an overall rating of 89 in FIFA 20, a potential of 95, and an absurd speed score of 94.7. 

Mbappé is very quick off of the mark with a 96 in acceleration, maintains ridiculous pace with a 96 for sprint speed, and has strong agility at 92. His 92 agility and 91 dribbling perfectly complement the PSG striker’s speed, while an 89 in finishing means he’ll rarely miss the target. Kylian Mbappé is the fastest forward in FIFA 20. 

Frank Acheampong (Speed Score: 93.7)

Overall: 77
Team: Tianjin Teda
Age: 25-years-old
Preferred Position: Striker
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Preferred Foot (Weak Foot): Left (Three-Star)
Nationality: Ghanaian

Having started his career in Ghana with King Faisal FC, Frank Acheampong has played in Thailand, Belgium, and is now settled in China. Playing for Tianjin Teda, after 165 games for RSC Anderlecht, Acheampong utilises his slight frame and speed from the wing. 

Over his time with Tianjin Teda in the Chinese Super League, the Ghanaian has notched 30 goals and 16 assists in 67 appearances. In FIFA 20, Frank Acheampong boasts overall ratings of 75 to 77 whether he plays at right midfield, right wing, left wing, left midfield, any attacking midfield role, any inside forward role, or any striking position. 

Acheampong is the only left-footed player standing as one of the top-five fastest players in FIFA 20 and has quite a favourable value of just £10.5 million, so many players bring him in as a super-sub. With 94 acceleration, 94 sprint speed, and 93 agility, Frank Acheampong is a versatile forward and incredibly fast player in the game, with his 78 finishing being usable.

Moon Seon Min (Speed Score: 93.3)

Overall: 71
Team: Jeonbuk Hyundai
Age: 27-years-old
Preferred Position: Left Wing
Skill Moves: Three-Star
Preferred Foot (Weak Foot): Right (Four-Star)
Nationality: Korea Republic

Most commonly featuring as a right winger for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC last season, Moon Seon Min was brought to the team to enhance an already powerful attack. Having led the league’s native players with 14 goals for Incheon United FC in the season prior, Moon scored 11 goals and led the league with 11 assists in his maiden season with Jeonbuk. As a part of his mandatory military service, Moon will be joining Sangju Sangmu in the middle of January.

Moon Seon Min boasts blistering pace in FIFA 20. His positional bias means that the Korea Republic international is better suited on either wing, with an overall rating of 71 on the right or left, but has a useable 67 rating in a striking role. 

As he’s only valued at £2.2 million while toting 95 agility, 94 sprint speed, and 91 acceleration, the overall rating won’t matter too much. The only aspect as a striker that lets Moon down a bit is his tepid rating of 70 for finishing. 

Allan Saint-Maximin (Speed Score: 93.0)

Overall: 79
Team: Newcastle United
Age: 22-years-old
Preferred Position: Right Wing
Skill Moves: Five-Star
Preferred Foot (Weak Foot): Right (Four-Star)
Nationality: French

Desperate to bring in some exciting talent over the summer, Newcastle United turned to OGC Nice forward Allan Saint-Maximin and his blistering pace. 

Still only 22-years-old, the Frenchman hasn’t had the kind of impact that many Magpies fans would have hoped for. He did, however, manage to nab one goal and an assist in his first 12 Premier League games. While his passing has left plenty to be desired, Saint-Maximin’s average of 4.5 dribbles per game certainly excites the crowd.

Speed and skill is the name of the game for Allan Saint-Maximin in FIFA 20, boasting a perfectly balanced 93 in acceleration, sprint speed, and agility. He’s fast, nimble, and is great with the ball at his feet. 

The Frenchman, who has yet to break into the national team, has a 90 in dribbling, 81 in ball control, but a lowly 67 for finishing, 66 for crossing, and 75 for short passing. Speed is the versatile forward’s main asset, but the other key stats pump up as Saint-Maximin climbs towards his 86 potential.

Thievy Bifouma (Speed Score: 92.7)

Overall: 74
Team: Yeni Malatyaspor
Age: 27-years-old
Preferred Position: Right Midfield
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Preferred Foot (Weak Foot): Right (Four-Star)
Nationality: Republic of the Congo

After developing his game with Strasbourg and being taken on by the Espanyol youth set-up, Thievy Bifouma was loaned out a lot by his parent club. First, he went to UD Las Palmas, then he played six games and scored two goals for West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League in 2013/14. 

In the ensuing seasons, Bifouma bounced to UD Almeria, Granada CF, and Reims, collecting 92.7four goals and four assists in 39 games for his parent club, Espayol, over his six years under contract at the Barcelona-based club. 

The winger then moved on the SC Bastia in France, before being sold to Osmanlispor at the start of 2017. Since then, Thievy Bifouma has played for four different Turkish clubs, finally landing at Yeni Malatyaspor in January 2019.

The versatile forward may not have the most appealing overall and potential ratings – both 74 – but his speed, skill, power, and finishing attributes make Bifouma very useable. With 92 agility, 93 acceleration, 93 sprint speed, 91 jumping, 75 ball control, 77 dribbling, 72 finishing, and 71 strength, Thievy Bifouma can be a real threat in the hands of the right FIFA 20 player. 

Those forwards shown above come in as the top five fastest strikers in FIFA 20, but the following players also boast strong speed attributes. Each player has at least a 91 in acceleration, agility, and sprint speed:
