An extremely convincing Neymar impersonator was spotted at the World Cup in Qatar once again - this time actually at one of Brazil's games. 

The impersonator was caught on camera in the stands during halftime of Brazil's win in its second Group G game against Switzerland Monday. 

Fans clamored around him and he even appeared to be escorted by security staff in yellow bibs and lanyards.

Spectators were quick to whip out their phones to take photos, thinking they were getting up close and personal with the soccer star. The fake Neymar even stopped to take a selfie with some. 

Photo agencies were even duped into thinking they had captured the forward as they sent around photos of the impersonator, captioning them as, 'Brazilian football player Neymar.' 

The real Neymar wasn't on the pitch as he is facing a battle to play in the World Cup again after hurting his ankle in Brazil's opener after a heavy tackle by Serbia defender Nikola Milenkovic.
