Then on Monday the Gareth Soutgate in-the-stands was finally unmasked.

Kane lookalike Mclaughlin, 26, says life in Essex has become a challenge thanks to the the six-goal striker’s success.

He said: “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.

“Last Saturday, some ladies even thought I was him! 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.”

But the council worker’s client facing weekend job at Westfield shopping centre in West London, where he works on the service desk as a team manager, even has Danny posing for photos and videos during his shifts.

He said: “People come up to me and ask my colleagues to take photos of me with them.”

“When England played Tunisia, a couple asked my colleague to take a video of me for their grandson.”
