A DIGITAL content producer was sacked after her bosses spotted her celebrating Harry Kane’s winning extra time Euro 2020 goal on TV.

Nina Farooqi found herself in hot water after cameras caught her and her friend jumping and screaming after the ball hit the back of the net.

The 37-year-old had wrapped an England flag around her and was seated right behind the goal at Wembley for the magical moment on Wednesday night as the Three Lions defeated Denmark.

But she was brought back down to earth with a bump when her boss called her the morning after to fire her for going to the historic game.

Nina, from Ilkley, Bradford, had pulled a sickie to go to the game with her pal who had won a last minute ticket in a ballot.


Speaking to The Telegraph, Nina said: "It’s mixed emotions: we’re through to the final, I’m still on that high, but I’ve also lost my job.

"My friend won the ticket in her work ballot, and knew I'd do anything to get to the game - there was no way I was going to turn it down.

"This hasn’t come around since 1996, I vividly remember crying on my mum's sofa when Gareth Southgate missed his penalty, and the football fan in me just couldn’t do it. Football is my life."

The huge footie fan thought that it was unlikely that her work would approve her last minute day off as they were short staffed.

She was nervous after realising that their seats were right behind the goal, but thought that in a crowd of 66,000 people she might get away with it.

But after checking her phone at half time, when England scored their equaliser, she realised that her cover had been completely blown.

Nina said: "We were all over the news, my face was on every television screen across the world - I had friends from Australia and America telling me they’d seen me.

“I was even on Stacey Dooley's Instagram story. My phone blew up. The whole world had seen me celebrating. The rational part of me thought, 'oh no, is this going to come back to haunt me?'"

She's sure to land something better, if for no other reason at all, but for her patriotism, love for the three lions, and of course, the round leather game.

Nothing happens by accident.

Employees must learn to be honest at all times; bosses have a heart, that's why they were kind enough to employ you in the first place.

God bless mean bosses like this.

I remember back in the days, I had this worker that wouldn't let me score. She told me it was against her morals. First, she was married and secondly, she was a devout Muslim. So I let her be.

Four months later, my friend who came visiting invited me to his hotel room. There was drinks and they were chicks. I hurriedly showed up and amongst the naked chicks tucked in his bed was my married muslimah employee.

Well, she was the one I settled for. I screwed her like a prisoner who was out on parole. Her moans were loud and full of regrets. Not regrets of being caught but regrets of having neglected such a sweet preek all the while.

Long story short, she resumed work the next day to meet a sack letter and a 'thank you' card on her desk.
Honesty remains the best policy because there's no way I was going to trust someone who told me she was a saint yet svcked a stranger's preek like a vacuum cleaner.

A good boss must tolerate a lot, but should NEVER tolerate being outsmarted.

Lie lie Nina. Anyway, in this world of today, you could become a celebrity with this kind of lie. Hopefully, the English FA compensates you with a job.

That she lied was a major ground to get fired. How does she expects her boss to trust her after being caught?

She has to choose between her job and football. You can't serve two masters at a time.

That office is someone's business.

The boss did the right thing, since she claimed sick just to see the match. Maybe that's her way of receiving divine open door.. Grace works.

In the UK & the US, you'll be dead. Sack letter, straight, even though it means they are short of an important member of staff.

I feel she should be given a job as a pundit on one of the numerous tv stations where she could do a job that she is passionate about.

Such patriotic gesture should not be swept under the carpet.

Her boss must have been livid and couldn't help but fire her ass. I have had to deal with such workers though. I didn't fire them on the spot but until I got a capable replacement
