Football Fans Go Wild After Neymar Lookalike Appears in Stands

Some fans went wild as Brazil played Switzerland in Qatar on November 28, after they thought they’d spotted Brazil’s injured superstar Neymar in the stands.

Footage by Wajdi Jbareen shows a man in a green jersey and with some very similar tattoos to Neymar making his way through a stand. “Neymar! Neymar is sitting next to us,” one fan can be heard shouting, before others gather around the doppelganger.

The video ends with the lookalike being escorted down a tunnel. Credit: Wajdi Jbareen via Storyful
