The embassy joked that their spokesperson Aaron Snipe had been fired before the game in a video posted on its official Twitter account before the goalless draw in Qatar.

Although it was "sad" to announce his departure, the Embassy stated above the tweet that "some things are more important than diplomacy."

In the video, Snipe can be seen entering the workplace while sporting an England scarf. A few coworkers give him disgusted looks as they pass by.

On reaching his office, with England flags, he noticed that someone had pasted the word "traitor" next to the Stars and Stripes on the glass window.

Then, a coworker enters and informs him that "HR called" and wants to see him "now.""Look man, I don't know why I need to be the one reminding you, but, you're an American.

You work for the U.S. Embassy. You cannot be rooting for England," an unnamed man tells him. " I'm gonna need you to take those decorations down. Take that shirt off.

Snipe stands up and responds, "OK. Good conversation. He removes his England home jersey as he exits, only to show an away jersey below.

"Aaron Snipe is not employed at the US Embassy in London," Dame Karen Pearce, former President of the UN Security Council and British Ambassador to the United States, responded to many.

He may serve as our new sports attaché for @UKinUSA, she tweeted. The American ambassador to the United Kingdom, Jane Hartley, responded, "You can have him."
