Terens Puhiri: Meet 23-year-old winger adjudged fastest footballer on planet

- Terens Puhiri has been adjudged to be the fastest player on the planet

- The 23-year-old winger combined the tenacity and speed of former athlete Usain Bolt

- Standing on 5ft 5in, Puhiri showcased his lightning-quick speed during 4-0 win over Mitra Kukar

Terens Puhiri may not be the finest footballer in the world but if we say the 23-year-old Borneo FC winger is the fastest footballer on the planet we may probably not need the verdict of a seer to authenticate it.

Puhiri is more of a speed than even Cristiano Ronaldo at his prime. The young winger combined the tenacity and speed of legendary Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt.

And that has marked him out as a big thing in Indonesian First Division where he is currently plying his football career.

Standing at 5ft 5in, the top winger from Jayapura, Indonesia has often thrown up a dazzling show to the excitement of the fans, but last year the young winger proved he might be the fastest star on the planet.

Puhiri showcased his lightning-quick speed during the 4-0 demolition of Mitra Kukar, ripping defenders apart with a dangerous counter move.

He slung the ball fast beyond the onrushing goalkeeper and gave a daring speed in what may turn out to be his best performance before firing into the net to send the stadium into a frenzy.

His incredible performance later made a pundit conclude that: "(N'Golo) Kante can cover 80% of the world, cuz Terens Puhiri prefers to take a nap."

Meanwhile, one of the fastest players on the world who Puhiri can compete with is Dortmund star Erling Haaland who put up a great performance against French Champions PSG.

Haaland single handedly put French champions PSG on the dagger with two wonderful goals that eased the Germans past their visitors on Tuesday, February 18, at Signal Iduna Park.

Interestingly, he was clocked running 60 metres in just 6.64 seconds, marking him out as a beautiful player the world must behold.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh had reported that Nigeria is a country of a plethora of talents and a recent confirmation to this is Eche Chinonso's breakthrough into the global stage from a local football freestyle prodigy in South-South oil hub Warri.

The 10-year-old freestyler is a product of hard work, and it seems his consistency is paying off faster than his imagination after he made his way into the most-sought Guinness World Record book.

Incredibly, Eche Chinonso who is widely known as an amazing kid has also been recognised and given a mention by FIFA, world football regulating body.
