How is it possible for doppelgangers to look like if they are not related?

    Same way different people can win the same lottery. EVERYBODY is related to eachother. We all share loads of ancestors. We only look different because we inherited different mutations from different ancestors.

    You need to understand that you only pass on half of your 46 chromosomes to a baby of yours. Even siblings of the same sexe typically share just about 23 chromosomes.

    People can look almost identical, but chances are they will still have different bloodtypes, allergies or other genetic traits

    In all honesty, doppelgangers aren't really a thing. When two people have a baby their genes mix to create a human completely unlike any others. (unless identical twins, which still usually have some differences.) People just see people that look SLIGHTLY similar and turn it into a spectacle. Use your own example; The "Iranian Messi" has darker skin, darker hair, a wider head, broader shoulders (completely different body type), longer nose, ECT. The only thing that links them is their hair and facial hair. If the Iranian cut off his beard they would look nothing alike.
