Shaqiri with Messi Click Here This looks *exactly* like me and my friend on photos, I'm exactly 170cm tall and he claims the same. Embarrassing some months ago when we were out on this club and a girl asked him how tall he was and he said 170, she was like "What??" and turned to me and was like then how tall are you? And I was just like "Tall enough I guess"

This is so wrong ,shaqiri is way taller than 5'5" I gv him 5'7"

Seems about right, although he must be pushing 80kg these days.

Do you think Iniesta might be overdue a page? One of the best midfielders of his generation. I would probably give just over 5'7".

For me 5ft 7 on the nose might be ok, although he has less hair than other players so that isn't exactly a visual advantage.

Am I imagining things or did he get downgraded immediately after being listed?
Editor Rob
He was given 5.75 temporarily.

If ribery is 170cm then shaqiri have to be 165. No chance for 167.

Shaqiri currently weighs 76 kg.

To compare him to another stocky athlete, 169cm All Black Aaron Smith is 83kg and he does not have the same exaggerated stocky appearance as Shaqiri. I know generally rugby and football physiques are no comparison, but in this case Shaqiri actually looks the heftier guy

Even at that height I reckon he must be closer to 80kg

Time to add Čech, Aubameyang, Kroos, Courtois, Butland and Pickford, Rob!

He looks so short on the field it's even kinda funny. Awesome player BTW.

I knew the 169 listing was wrong. He really gave a shorter impression than that.

It's great that this talented footballer has a page and I like his name! I was wondering about his height yesterday and I was also thinking of putting in a page request, now he is here! I have to say that he does look about 4 inches shorter than Mark Hughes, who is listed online at 5'10"! Therefore I trust Rob in that he hovers somewhere near to the 5'6" mark!

Only 72kg? I know hes small but still... he is a tank!
Editor Rob
That weight is from his earlier Basel days, probably a few kg heavier in recent years than at age 19

Could you add Dries Mertens from Belgium? He looks the same as Eden Hazard but has a smaller frame tbh.
Editor Rob
Mertens does give an impression of being shorter than Hazard, though he may not be by much really.
