FC Tokyo hire Andres Iniesta impersonator for game against Vissel Kobe

When the story first broke, we thought it was a bit of a joke. FC Tokyo weren't really going to hire an Andres Iniesta impersonator because the new Vissel Kobe No. 8 was going to miss the trip to the Ajinomoto Stadium on Sunday, were they?

Well, they did. They hired Iam Noda, and this was the result. 

Stand by for a host of famous football impersonators suddenly getting work when stars are injured. And, judging by this one, you don't even have to look very much like the player in question!

If you care about what happened in the game, Brazilian Lins scored in the 90th minute as Tokyo beat Vissel 1-0 to move within five points of leaders Sanfrecce Hiroshima. Even Iniesta might not have helped that.
