Cristiano Ronaldo lookalike and social media personality, Shanta Kordbatchje, has dreams of facing his idol at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Simply known as ‘Shanta Ronaldo’ on Instagram, the 20-year-old was often the subject of opinion from many on social media, claiming that he had undergone surgery to look like the Portuguese great.
Shanta told SunSport that the surgery claims are fake and that he had never gone under the knife.
“I can confirm that these stories are fake, all of them. They think that I may look like him, have the same hair style, but I think going that far is not good, but there is nothing you can do,” he told SunSport.

The Sun also reported that the Iranian-Danish striker will be heading to Spanish side AD Union Adarve for a trial stint this year. Union Advarde ply their trade in Spain’s Segunda B division, the third level of Spanish football.
Nonetheless, The Sun further reported that Shanta aims to represent his country of birth, Iran, at the 2022 World Cup and to ultimately face his footballing idol.
“You never know what will happen in four years, but if I played against him it would be something unique.
“It is something to face him, but to have him as an idol and then face him is something very, very special,” Shanta said as quoted by The Sun.
