Fellaini & De Bruyne at the double

Published Add your comment

Marouane Fellaini must be shattered.

No sooner had he completed a £27.5 million move to Manchester United, the Belgian midfielder was whisked off to Glasgow to link up with his international teammates ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park.

And you could forgive the 25-year-old midfielder for wanting a day off to take everything in, as reality kicks in and Fellaini comes to terms with joining one of the biggest teams in world football - if only there was a lookalike who could stand in for him…

Well, now there is. The Belgian Football Association ran a competition on its Facebook page to find passable doppelgangers for their top stars.

Ahead of the all-important qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia, the hand-picked looky-likeys met the originals, with Chelsea's Kevin de Bruyne particularly shocked upon seeing his double.

Although Fellaini wasn't present to see his spitting image, Timmy Simons, Toby Alderweireld and De Bruyne all teamed up with their lookalikes in a game of table football.

Watch the video (above) - with thanks to the Metro for bringing this to our attention - and send us your pictures of football looky-likeys!
