They may be huge Socceroo and Mark Bresicano fans, but Melbourne couple Fran and Chris reckon their cute bub Duke bears a striking resemblance to another Socceroo superstar.
So much so that Fran tweeted Tim Cahill a picture of her little guy heading a football.
What do you think?
“I think he has a little bit of a resemblance to Tim,” said proud mum Fran.
The couple with Duke in tow were some of the 2500 fans at Sunday's Fan Day for the Socceroos.
It was a huge success with many families taking the chance to get close to their heroes.
Duke wore his special Socceroo onesie in honour of the day but refused to comment on his lookalike status with the Aussie superstar when quizzed by www.socceroos.com.au.
So Mum Fran explained.
“He was born during the World Cup so he was very, very active and alert during the nights the World Cup was on," she said.
And will Duke become a Socceroo?
“We’ll start him early,” promised Fran.
Fran and Chris wore their Bresciano 23 Socceroo shirts with pride on Sunday.
They simply love the playmaker.
And even though their son bears a striking resemblance to Cahill, the Melbourne couple speak with glowing pride when asked about the former Serie A star.
“Bresh sets them all up. He’s a magician,” said Chris.
“He’s [Bresciano]been such a stalwart for so long, we wouldn’t have got to the World Cups that we have without him,” added Fran.
“We love him.”
