Roy Keane Lookalike: Lexile 4
A 16th century painting looks a lot like Irish football hero Roy Keane. It was spotted in Florence, Italy.
The painting is called Portrait of a Gentleman in a Fur. It was painted by Paolo Veronese. It was painted between the years 1550 and 1560. It shows a rich man wearing fine clothes.
The person in the painting has the same eyes and beard as Roy Keane. Could Keane have played for Italy instead of Ireland?
Pictures of the painting were passed around quickly on Reddit.com.
Other famous footballers have looked similar to a dead Italian. Germany and Arsenal player Mesut Ozil looks like Enzo Ferrari. He was the founder of Ferrari motors. Oddly Ferrari died in 1988, the year Ozil was born.
Did these Italian lookalikes, Roy and Mesut talk about this when Ireland played Germany in the European Qualifiers. Probably not!

Roy Keane Lookalike: Lexile 5
A 16th century painting that looks a lot like Irish footballing legend Roy Keane was spotted in Florence, Italy.
Portrait of a Gentleman in a Fur was painted by Paolo Veronese between 1550 and 1560. It shows a rich man wearing fur lined clothes.
But it's the person's icy stare and grey streaked beard that makes us wonder if he’s related to the former Manchester United and Celtic star. Could Keane have played for Italy instead of Ireland?
Pictures of the painting went viral after someone made the link on Reddit.com.
This isn't the first time that a famous footballer has looked similar to a departed Italian. Germany and Arsenal player Mesut Ozil looks like Enzo Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari motors. Weirdly Ferrari died in 1988, the year Ozil was born.
Did these Italian lookalikes, Roy and Mesut discuss this when Ireland played Germany in the European Qualifiers. Probably not!

Roy Keane Lookalike: Lexile 6
A 16th century painting that bears striking resemblance to Irish footballing legend Roy Keane was spotted in Florence, Italy.
Portrait of a Gentleman in a Fur was painted by Paolo Veronese between 1550 and 1560. It shows a wealthy looking man wearing fur lined clothes.
But it's the person's icy stare and grey streaked beard that makes us wonder if he's a distant relation of the former Manchester United and Celtic star. In fact, could Keane have played for Italy instead of Ireland?
Pictures of Veronese's painting went viral lately after someone made the comparison on Reddit.com.
This isn't the first time that a famous footballer has looked very similar to a deceased Italian. Germany and Arsenal player Mesut Ozil has famously been compared to Enzo Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari motors. Even weirder is that Ferrari died in 1988, the year Ozil was born.
I wonder if Italian lookalikes might be something that Roy and Mesut discussed when Ireland played Germany in the European Qualifiers. Probably not!
