England beware.. Kylian Mbappe isn’t even the fastest player in France’s World Cup squad.. even faster with TWO stars

KYLIAN MBAPPE’S pace makes England fans nervous – but he’s not even among the top two Frenchmen.

The Three Lions meet France in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday and Mbappe is believed to be the biggest threat to Gareth Southgate’s side.

Champions League data shows the PSG star was the third fastest French player in this season’s groups.

Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele tops the leaderboard at 36.6km/h, level with Shakhtar Donetsk’s Ukrainian hotshot Mykhailo Mudryk.

Dembele hasn’t been brilliant for the La Liga side this season but has still made some valuable contributions.

His four goals and five assists in the league helped the team to top spot before the World Cup break.

He is yet to find the net at the tournament but has provided two assists.

With Luke Shaw expected to retain his place at left-back, the Manchester United defender will need to be on form to keep the winger calm.

AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez was the next French star, clocking 10th at 35.7km/h, followed by Mbappe in 11th.

Hernandez is likely to play behind Mbappe in the England game.

He has already provided two assists at the tournament and continued his fine form in Serie A.

For his club, Hernandez has been very good defensively and has also scored two goals and provided two more in his 13 league games.

Whilst it is believed Kyle Walker Mbappe will be made compulsory, anyone playing Southgate on right wing will have to have their fair share of defence.

Bukayo Saka could be the choice in this case as he has played at full-back at times earlier in his career.

Portugal’s AC Milan striker Rafael Leao (36.5km/h), then Real Madrid’s Uruguayan midfielder Federico Valverde (36.3km/h) and another Portuguese star – Marseille’s Arsenal loanee Nuno Tavares (36.2km/h) h) – complete the top 5.

Should England beat France, they will face either Portugal or Morocco in the semi-finals of the World Cup for a place in the final.
