Morses Club has scoured the internet to find five celebrities that are the spitting image of some of the world’s most famous footballers. From Manchester United to Napoli, these lookalikes come from all over the globe.
Chicharito / Bruno Mars
Javier Hernández Balcázar (commonly known as Chicharito) is a football player originally from Mexico, who initially played for football teams in Mexico before moving to play for Manchester United and is currently playing in Germany. The 27-year old is a dead-ringer for famous solo artist Bruno Mars, who’s known for his bestselling hits such as ‘Marry me’ and ‘When I was your Man’.
Karim Benzema / Shia LaBeouf
Karim Benzema is a footballer from France who plays for the popular Real Madrid Football Club in Spain. Benzema looks pretty similar to American Transformer’s actor Shia LaBeouf, who has made headlines in recent years for his controversial behaviour.
Leon Best / Drake
Leon Best is a professional striker for Rotherham United, and previously played for a Republic of Ireland team. The 29 year old was born in Nottingham, a far cry from his famous celebrity lookalike Drake. The rapper and singer is originally from Canada, and has racked up an impressive portfolio of four best-selling albums.
Robin Van Persie / Ben Affleck
Dutch footballer Robin Van Persie is famed for his role as Manchester United Striker, but left the team in July 2015 to join Turkish club Fenerbahçe. He also plays for the Netherlands national team. He has a striking resemblance to Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who played a lead role in the recent Batman movie, and is also famed for his memorable parts in Argo and Gone Girl.
Pepe Reina / Stanley Tucci
José Manuel "Pepe" Reina Páez, or Pepe Reina as he’s widely known as, is a Spanish footballer who currently plays as a professional goalkeeper for Italy’s Napoli football club. The son of famous FC Barcelona and Madrid goalkeeper looks very similar to a certain famous writer and actor.
