Jurgen Klopp was rubbing shoulders with Three Lions die-hards prior to England’s historic victory against old foe Germany in the Euros at Wembley – well, sort of.
When videos emerged online of the Liverpool boss necking beers and singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ on the streets after the game, some people were absolutely loving it while others remained sceptical.
And on closer inspection, it wasn’t too long before everyone realised that it wasn’t actually the tracksuit-sporting, veneer-donning German tactician after all – it was just his doppelgänger.

In the hilarious clip posted on social media, the scarily-similar Klopp lookalike can be seen chanting Frank Skinner and David Badiel’s iconic song and sipping on a Carlsberg while swaying around on some bloke’s shoulders.
From the official Reds tracksuit and hat combo to the bright white teeth and grey beard, the lad has clearly gone above and beyond to ensure he looks the part.
And at first glance, you can totally see why people (including myself) fell for it.
The bloke looks more like JurgenKloppthan JurgenKloppdoes.
But then again, Klopp celebrating with England supporters after they beat his native Germany in a major tournament?
Fans wasted no time in flooding to social media to share the video, which ended up sparking some debate with a select few people still adamant that it was the Premier League-winning gaffer.
As for the game itself, it’ll undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest England results in recent history as the Three Lions booked their spot in the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over their age-old rivals.
From Frank Lampard’s ruled out goal at the 2010 World Cup to the countless penalty shootout disasters, England have finally exacted revenge after years of hurt at the hands of the Germans.
Stalemate after the first 45 minutes meant the Three Lions were forced to turn to their big-name players in a bid to break the deadlock in the second half.
They certainly didn’t disappoint.
Jack Grealish’s injection tipped the game on its head and it wasn’t long until the home side’s patience paid off.
Raheem Sterling scored the opener late on before skipper Harry Kane put the game to bed by bagging his first goal of the tournament shortly after.
England fans up and down the country will undoubtedly be partying long into the night – can’t imagine Klopp’s doppelgänger will be hitting the hay anytime soon either.
