Ahead of a highly anticipated Champion's League match that will see Borussia Dortmund face off with Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, the German Foreign Office took to Twitter to support its team and tease their British rivals.
"Dear Brits, We really ❤️ you & still think it’s a pity that you want to leave the EU, " the tweet said.
"But when it comes to the last 16 of #UCL we are for a quick triple #Brexit – #NoDeal and no #backstop," it continued.
The Brexit joke instantly became very popular on the social network — particularly among British users. Many poked fun at the Germans for actually being capable of humour, while others answered more seriously on the merits of leaving or staying in the EU.
The UK Foreign Office responded with statistics showing England was ahead of other European nations in terms of Champions League appearances.
"We are leaving the EU, but we’re not leaving Europe," the tweet concluded.
