A Harry Kane doppelgänger has football fans chanting his name as England edge closer to the World Cup final.

Danny Mclaughlin has been posing for hundreds of photographs and videos thanks to his uncanny resemblance to the Tottenham and England captain.

He even has fans chanting his name and queuing up to take a picture with him every time he goes to the pub to watch the latest World Cup match.

The 26-year-old Spurs fab was first mistaken for his favourite footballer 18 months ago after Kane won the Premier League Golden Boot in 2016 as lead goal scorer, taking home 25 goals for Tottenham.

Londoner Danny watched England’s most recent victory against Sweden at The King’s Head in Ongar, Essex surrounded by jubilant fans chanting ‘Harry Kane’ after he spent the evening posing for more than a dozen selfies at the bar.

“As soon as I walk into the pub, people scream. There were queues of people asking for my photo – men and women of all ages”: he told the BBC

He says he offer catches people sneaking snapshots of him with their mobile phones during his daily commute to work at Hackney Council and has even missed his train while posing for photos on the platform with Harry Kane fans.

“It is weird when you catch people taking a photo of you.Last Thursday, I was approached by somebody at the station who asked me if I knew I looked like Harry Kane.Before I knew it, I’d missed my train”
