Fans convinced Steve McClaren lookalike was in the crowd as a FRANCE fan for 2018 World Cup win vs Croatia

FANS are convinced that the Steve McClaren lookalike spotted supporting England actually cheered on FRANCE in the 2018 World Cup final.

The Three Lions suffered heartbreak as they were eliminated from this year’s tournament after losing 2-1 to the defending world champions at the Al Bayt Stadium on Saturday.

The Steve McClaren lookalike has been spotted cheering on FRANCE

Fans are convinced this was him cheering for Les Bleus at the 2018 World Cup final

However, England fans still found a reason to lift their spirits as they spotted former Three Lions manager McClaren’s lookalike for the second time.

That came after he initially shot to social media fame in the last-16 clash with Senegal.

The fan was pictured going wild with the rest of the crowd while Gareth Southgate’s men pushed for a second goal that would have sent the game to extra-time.

And he held the same World Cup trophy replica he had during the 3-0 victory over Senegal.

However, a new retro snap which is believed to be the same individual has now emerged.

A fan travelling home from Qatar says they re-watched France’s win over Croatia on the plane’s television – and it did not take long for him to spot a familiar face.

Sharing screengrabs of the fan cheering as Les Bleus claimed the victory, he captioned them with: “Watched back the 2018 WC Final on the flight to Qatar. Is that… It is, isn’t it?”

“No way,” replied one of his followers as another said: “He’s everywhere!”

While another replied: “I’m convinced were in a simulation now.”

And another commented: “He’s literally cheering for France.”

Meanwhile, it appears that it is not only England and France that the individual likes to support.

His is also allegedly a follower of Manchester United, and there is video footage to prove it.

Unless it is another McClaren doppelganger, a clip the Red Devils shared after their 2016 FA Cup Final win shows him wildly celebrating their triumph.

After the video resurfaced online, one Twitter user wrote: “He’s everywhere!”

As another added: “Everywhere I look he’s there!”
