A doppelganger of Brazil's talisman Neymar has taken Qatar by storm as thousands of fans and venue officials took selfies with the impersonator, who is at the FIFA World Cup 2022. Sosia Doney has an uncanny resemblance to the Brazilian superstar and first made an appearance during the team's 1-0 win over Switzerland, at Stadium 974, on Monday.
While the real Neymar was following the action while recovering from an ankle injury he sustained in the first game against Serbia, the reel one was mobbed by fans at Stadium 974 with security in tow.
