Neymar is one of the most popular soccer players in the entire Globe, and it shouldn’t be too shocking that another person out there looks exactly like him.
Neymar’s doppelganger fooled hundreds of fans and even the media when FOX Soccer posted a video of the guy being followed and recorded by fans who were pulling at him to notice them and take pictures.
The Twitter account eventually realized that they got fooled.
The look-a-like, Eigon Oliver, has been living quite the life as Neymar for some time. His Instagram account has over 910,000 followers and growing with the recent speculation surrounding his looks.
Neymar’s doppelganger also posted some of the videos on his official Instagram handle @sosiadoney. “I couldn’t watch yesterday’s game. Someone comment here in the comments the SCORE, please,” read the caption of the video.
Other Instagram videos posted by Neymar’s doppelganger show him walking on the streets of Doha, getting selfies with fans, and signing autographs.
Check out the fanfare in the stands:
As for the real man, Brazil supporters will be worried about Neymar Jr’s fitness as there’s still no indication that he will be fit again this World Cup. The PSG forward injured ligaments in his right ankle in their opening game against Serbia and was ruled out for the rest of the group stage.
There’s been no official timetable for Neymar’s return. That means he could end up missing the rest of the World Cup.
That means his doppelganger is only going to get more popular.
