A British company created souvenir World Cup mugs for England's soccer team, but purportedly made a glaring "mistake."

One of the mugs in the set featured the face of President Barack Obama in England's soccer jersey instead of English defender Chris Smalling, a British online merchant said.

According to the seller's posting, the unnamed Dorset-based company created 2,000 of the botched mugs, which are now being sold as novelty items on Wholesale Clearance UK for £2,000, equal to $3,400, for the entire stock.

The site called the mugs "wonderfully mistaken."
