West Yorkshire, a staff of Composite Prime in Bradford, has been fired after her boss accused her of lying having claimed she was sick only to be seen on camera while at Wembley.
England edged Denmark in the semifinal of the ongoing Copa America following a 2-1 win after the game stretched into extra-time.
The boss of a woman who was sacked for ‘pulling a sickie’ to watch England’s semi-final win at Wembley has slammed her for ‘lying’.
Nina Farooqi had, alongside her friend, won last minutes free tickets to see the game but she allegedly pulled a sickie just to attend the match.
The 37-year-old claimed she felt she would not be allowed to attend the historic event due to work being short-staffed.

She then called in sick and joined lunchtime train from Leeds to London Kings Cross, before heading to Wembley, SunSport gathered.
However, her face was beamed around the world when a TV camera zoomed in on her and her friend celebrating England’s equalising goal.
Farooqi, who was sitting behind the goal, even appeared on TV presenter Stacey Dooley’s Instagram story, something she excitedly shared with friends.
Charles Taylor, director at Composite Prime, said the company were left with ‘no choice’ but to sack Farooqi. He also revealed that he would be giving company staff Monday morning off to recover after Sunday evening’s final against Italy.
