Euro 2020: Woman Get Sacked For Watching England Vs Denmark Semi-Final Game

Euro 2020: Woman Get Sacked For Watching England Vs Denmark Semi-Final Game

A woman, Nina Farooqi, has been sacked after she was shown on television cheering England on in their 2-1 win over Denmark at the semifinal of the European Championships at Wembley Stadium.

Farooqi, according to Daily Mail, had told her boss she was sick and needed a day off work. She called in sick after her friend won last-minute tickets to the match in a work raffle.

She was however spotted celebrating England’s first goal. Her colleagues texted her at half-time to inform her that she was shown on television.

The 37-year-old digital content producer was sacked at 6am the following day. Her boss called, asking her not to bother returning to work.

Farooqi said she was unlikely to be allowed a day off to watch the match due to being short-staffed, prompting her to call in sick.

“They said they’d seen I’d been at the game, and I was honest about why I did it. But I didn’t get any sympathy at all and they said that’s it. That’s their call and the consequence of what I did.

“There is a bit of regret, no one wants to get fired, but then also I would have hated the regret of missing out. I’d do it all over again,” she told the Daily Telegraph.

    Loool, TV camera don put this lady for wahala! She for wear face mask na, Lol. Like many of us do, she could have watched the game at work on her computer. My office has been where I have watched many, many Nigeria matches. Anytime we score, I have to control myself not to shout! Hehehehe!
    If na me, I would have been honest about my intentions, and offered to come in on a weekend to make up for the missed day. Or something similar.
    Unfortunately, most employers will have seen this, and I think it will be a tough period of job hunting for Ms. Farooqi for this reason.
    I hope she finds a new job soon.
