England star Phil Foden has a doppelganger in the form of a grumpy-looking cat.
Football fans have taken to social media pointing out the uncanny resemblance to the Manchester City player.
The white cat with a unique fur pattern has caused a stir on Instagram, as its ‘hair’ and jawline look similar to Foden’s.
The moggy has now earned the nickname Phil Fur-den who plays for ‘Meownchester’ City.

The cat was posted by film director Glenn Kitson, who uploads celebrity lookalikes on social media with deliberately wrong captions.
He posted: ‘Phil Foden is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the England national team. He is considered one of the best young players in the world.’
According to people in the comments, the black and white cat has the same stare and ‘trim’ as the 22-year-old player.
Some users named the cat ‘Philine Foden’ while another said he represents ‘felines on the shirt’.

Footy fans were sharing the image after Foden scored in the 51st minute of England’s 3-0 World Cup win against home nation side Wales on Tuesday.
Southgate was criticised following the game against the United States, after Foden was not in the starting line-up.
But two goals from Marcus Rashford and Foden’s crucial strike were enough to see off Wales, who now exit the tournament, with the USA qualifying behind England in the group.
England will play Senegal on Sunday in their last-16 game in the fight to get a spot in the final eight teams.
