England Players and Their Celebrity Lookalikes

1 of 10

    All eyes are on the England national team as they battle for supremacy in UEFA World Cup Qualification Group H with crunch ties against Poland and Montenegro.

    Therefore, what better time to take a look at some of the best England player lookalikes out there?

    Check out our doppelgangers, then suggest your own in the comments below.

Joe Hart and James Van Der Beek

    Dawson's Creek star James van der Beek has a website where he acts out internet memes and makes GIFs of them. It's almost as difficult to look at as some of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart's recent performances. 

Ashley Cole and Kurt Couto

    When he shaved his monobrow into two discernible entities, Mozambique 400m hurdler Kurt Couto became an Ashley Cole doppelganger. If he ever goes near the Emirates or Cheryl Cole, this may prove to be unfortunate. 

Leighton Baines and Sir Bradley Wiggins

    They're both good at sports, they both have long sideburns and they both have "The Eton Rifles" by The Jam playing in a permanent loop in their heads.

    Everton's Leighton Baines and Olympic gold medalist Bradley Wiggins are mods separated at birth.  

Phil Jones and Blakey

    When the Phil Jones face phenomenon swept the Internet earlier this year, the Manchester Utd star's gurning face seemed a little familiar. That's because we had seen it in the 1970s on Inspector Cyril "Blakey" Blake in On the Buses

    Jones could also pass for perma-surprised Muppet Beaker.

James Milner and Lee Evans

    If James Milner lost some jawline definition and learned how to sweat through a suit jacket during an intense 90-minute stand-up set, he could easily pass for comedian Lee Evans.

    If you squint hard enough, he also looks a bit like the Churchill dog

Chris Smalling and Barack Obama

    One is among the most powerful men in the world, with a well-respected partner and millions of supporters waiting to see his next move. The other is Barack Obama. 

Andros Townsend and Lewis Hamilton

    Spurs winger Andros Townsend has a decent amount of pace, but he isn't quite as quick as his Formula 1 equivalent, Lewis Hamilton

Danny Welbeck and Wesley Snipes

    Thanks to his tall hairstyle, Manchester Utd's Danny Welbeck is often compared to Gerald from Hey Arnold!

    But if the striker was 30 years older and not very good at paying his taxes, he could easily pass for Wesley Snipes.

Wayne Rooney and Aaron Ashmore

    Everybody knows that Wayne Rooney's most commonly cited dead ringer is Shrek, but in the Wayne Rooney life story, his part will be played by Canadian actor Aaron Ashmore.

    Smallville's Jimmy Olsen will probably have to lose a little hair and gain a Harry Potter-style forehead scar for the part.
