Alisson Becker, 25, distracted viewers from around the globe with his rugged good looks that some were saying made him look like the 'lost Hemsworth brother' to Chris, Liam and Luke.
“Fun Fact - Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson is actually the fourth Hemsworth brother.”
“No wonder #Mexico couldn't score, #Brazil played with #Thor as their goalkeeper.”
“Wait, is Thor playing goalkeeper for Brazil? Is that legal?”
“The goalkeeper sparked interest among fans on Twitter during the intense World Cup game against Mexico where Alisson showed off his goalkeeping skills by preventing the opposing team from scoring during the entirety of the game.”
But although Alisson certainly put on an impressive performance on the pitch - not letting a single ball pass him during the entire game - it wasn't his skills that were attracting the most attention online.
Indeed, many spectators sharing their thoughts about the game on Twitter admitted to being rather distracted by Alisson's handsome features - while others noted that they had only stayed tuned into the game in the first place in order to catch a better glimpse of him.
“Planned on rooting for Mexico but holy smokes have you seen the Brazilian goalkeeper. Hot damn.”
Alisson has been married for the past three years to Natália Loewe. They welcomed their first child - a daughter called Heleninha - together last year, and both regularly post adorable images of themselves with the beautiful baby girl on social media.
Alisson has played for AS Roma - an Italian Serie A team - for the past two years, having completed his transfer to the side in July 2016. However, it looks as though he is now preparing to leave the club this summer and head off in search of a new home, with London-based Premier League team Chelsea, and Spanish side Real Madrid serving as the main contenders.
