The spitting image suspect walks with the same swagger and appears to have the same stubble, hairline, physique and have the same taste in sport casual wear.

Avon and Somerset Police said the robbery took place at midday on October 19 with a neighbour filming the two men acting suspiciously.

At the time of the raid in Bristol, Rooney was preparing for a match against Stoke City, where he hit the back of the net twice and scored and an own goal.

A police spokesperson said: “The images show two men in the area at the time who might have important information which could help us with our enquiries.

“The burglary occurred at midday when a window was forced and several rooms searched.

“We are investigating and attended the scene at the time to search the area.

“That day we also spoke to various pawn shops and gold-buying shops to alert them to the stolen items and circulated these images to police officers to see if anyone could identify them.”
