French Striker Karim Benzema’s stock is on the rise. However, the 26 year old Real Madrid forward has had his fair share of disappointments in the past year. A little over a year ago in a World Cup qualifiying home game against Spain, Benzema was belittled by a symphony of boos from the French fans. Spain won the match 1-0

Cut to today, where Benzima is now the toast of the town in Paris and other parts of the Gallic nation. He has scored three goals in as many games and is in contention for the coveted FIFA World Cup Golden Boot trophy.

Benzima has earned praise from players, coaches and fans as he has led his team in all aspects of the game. When he steps on to the pitch on Monday to face Nigeria, he will look to put his team on his back and carry them on to the quarterfinals.

But soccer enthusiasts are not the only ones giving attention and praise to Benzema, Hollywood and social media is as well as Benzema is a dead ringer for Tranformers star, Shia LaBeouf. Do you think we have found his doppelganger? You decide:
