Eccentric, passionate fans are as integral to the world’s greatest tournament as the teams and players themselves. They come in all shapes, colours and sizes.
If your national team is doing well the enthusiasm will bring out joy in all, as proven by one dedicated fan who attended England’s game against Sweden, in Samara, dressed like Three Lions manager, Gareth Southgate.

I won’t lie, the resemblance is very uncanny.
Even those on Twitter are convinced the Southgate in the stands, is a like-for-like doppelgänger of the England manager.
Here’s what England fans on Twitter are saying:

That Gareth Southgate lookalike….sure I've met him at the game. If it is him….he's a Red called Neil.

Let’s hope we see more of the Southgate lookalike as this tournament goes on.
I mean, it’s coming home so we’re bound to see plenty more of either Southgate!
