8 Football Players and their Celebrity Look A Likes

Dealing with fame is one common factor that celebrities and football players have in common. Acting and playing football are obviously different in dynamics from a physical and contextual aspect. Despite such, there are also some big similarities the two professions hold.

Football players are always on the go training hard, conditioning their bodies, and playing with other teammates all to score a goal in a football match with thousands of fans watching in a big arena. The pressure is just as intense when you are an A-list actor or celebrity in Hollywood.

Movie and television actors often practice their lines over and over to get the right scene done while working with several cast and crew members for the viewing pleasure for people who love entertainment on-screen and off-screen. Here are some famous footballers and celebs who share quite the same facial features…
