Harry Kane Lookalike Congratulated By Football Fans After England's Win

After last night's performance in Russia, I think it's fair to say that Harry Kane is currently England's most-loved fella.

Football-fans packed out pubs to watch Kane put two past Tunisia and went absolutely wild when the final whistle blew, with chants of 'it's coming home' heard up and down the country. If there's one thing we English are good at it getting our hopes up over the World Cup.

While Kane is still out there in Russia, closer to home, Paul Foden - who calls himself 'Chubby Harry Kane' on Twitter - is getting himself a lot of attention, because...well look at him:

Paul was in Salou with his pals yesterday, where he a few other Brits watched the match in the hotel bar, which must have been quite a surreal experience for them.

"One guy came up to me, he was a Spurs fan and he asked me to get a photo with him. That happens quite a lot," Paul told LADbible.

"As Kane has become well-known I'm getting 'recognised' more and more, it used to be the odd comment here or there but now it's a weekly basis.

"I think my auntie was the first one to comment on it and from there it's just grown. People come to me in all sorts of places and mention it or ask for a photo."

Shortly after Kane's last-minute goal winner, a bunch of piss-taking England fans rushed to congratulate Paul on social media.

He continued: "I got home to a load of messages on Twitter from people thanking me and saying well done."

Paul, from Middlesbrough, even found himself going viral last June when he tweeted his likeness to Kane and people loved the comparison.

Due to his spot-on-likeness, he's recently signed to a lookalike agency and has already landed himself a booking as well as several inquires - can you imagine how busy he's going to be if when England get to the final?

However, Paul is cautiously optimistic about England's chances, saying: "My heart says we can win it. My head says we can get to the semis. I'd be happy with semis."

Oh and in case you're wondering, our man Paul isn't too bad at footy himself.

"I'm alright," he says. "I mean, not compared to the real thing, but I play a couple of times a week and I'm not bad."
