All right, we know President Obama has been hitting the gym lately, but we wouldn't necessarily say he's ready for the World Cup.

Unfortunately for this souvenir company, however, they thought he was a member of the English soccer squad. Defender Chris Smalling's name was spelled correctly and looked great written at the bottom, so they got that part right, but the mug features the U.S. President's mug instead.

Seriously, how did that even happen? Obviously this pic was Photoshopped because we very much doubt there was actually a photo of the Prez rocking England's soccer jersey. So, someone sat there and cropped out the suit and podium or whatever was in the actual pic and threw the jersey on him.

The fact that every other player has a team photo and this particular one didn't might have been another clue.

There are currently 2,000 mugs that feature the President in the place of the English soccer star and the company is trying to unload the whole lot for just over $3,000. Any takers? Raw: Obama Plays Soccer with Japanese Robot
