Lookalikes of star footballers Neymar, Marcelo, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were among several doppelgangers to show off their football skills at a charity event for children in Sao Paulo on Sunday.

The fourth such event to be organised by the 'Play Soccer Brazil' football association in the past few months, the scheme offers youngsters the chance to imagine they are really meeting their football idols up close and personal.

"People think they could meet Neymar at every day places, like airports. I know he has his own jet," said Neymar doppelganger Eigon Oliver.

According to the event’s organiser Carlito Oliveira, the lookalikes’ attendance brought in more food donations for those in need.

The event took place ahead of the much-anticipated Brazil vs. Argentina semi-final clash in the Copa America on Wednesday.
