You might recognise the guy on the right – that's David Luiz who is a Brazilian footballer with long curly hair who plays the position of defender.

You might not know the guy on the left – but that's Davi Luis who is a Brazilian footballer with long curly hair who plays the position of defender.

Wait….what?

The amazing doppelganger spot was made by Brazilian website Globoesporte.

Luiz is a Premier League star with Chelsea of course but his almost-namesake look-a-like is not quite playing at the same level.

Instead he plies his trade for Galicia in the second division of Brazil's Bahia region.

However, at 19-years-old Luis still has time to catch up ability wish with the 26-year-old Luiz who has won 20 caps for Brazil.

"I do not know him (Luiz). Only from the television. Everywhere I go people say I look like him. Everyone talks to me about it. Who knows, maybe one day we will play together? I'm left-footed. He is right-footed. It would be a great partnership.

"My dream is to establish myself and play for a big team in Europe and in Brazil."

We will have to keep our eye on young Luis in the future, while Luiz is probably glad he is finally being compared to somebody other than Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons.
