World Cup-themed mugs that mistakenly portray an image of U.S. President Barack Obama instead of the U.K. national soccer team’s defender Chris Smalling are in high demand on eBay after a manufacturing mix-up, Time.com reports.

An employee at the manufacturer appears to have confused the U.K.’s Smalling with Obama, printing about 2,000 mugs labeled “Chris Manning” and portraying Obama’s face, the BBC reports. About 500 mugs were bought in the United States.
