Guess who was out and about to watch his fave Liverpool play? Damian was spotted at the UEFA Champions League match, round of 16, leg 2 of 2, on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, UK. Liverpool lost 0 -1 against Internazionale Milano (Inter), but won by aggregate. In the first game, LFC beat Inter 2 – 0. In the second match, Inter beat LFC 1 – 0. LFC has more goals in total, so even though LFC lost this game, they will go on to the quarter finals. Damian posed for photos with many fans and even made a stop at Taggy’s, a unique LFC-themed bar on 21 Anfield Road. Whether Damian stopped by to imbibe for pre-game or post-game, who can tell?! 🙂 But we’re told some singing may have been involved. For more about Taggy’s Bar, visit their website here.

Damian Lewis Attends UEFA Euro 2020 Final

England v Italy

Damian (bye-bye beard) and pals attended Euro 2020 Final to watch England v Italy at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July11, 2021. England stunned Italy with an early opener when Luke Shaw scored for the Three Lions. Shaw’s opener, timed at one minute 57 seconds, is the fastest goal ever scored in a UEFA EURO final, surpassing Chus Pereda’s sixth-minute effort in the 1964 showpiece. With Italy dictating play in the second half, they tied the score 1-1 with a goal from Leonardo Bonucci in the 67th minute of the match. It was a tough second half for England – Italy were able to keep more ball possession and to control the flow of the game. Bonucci become the oldest player to score in a European Championship final.

At the end of the second half, the tied match went to extra-time. This was the seventh EURO final to go to extra time (1960, 1968, 1976, 1996, 2000, 2016) and both Teams went to extra-times in their semi-finals. With no goals scored in extra-time, the match was decided by a penalty shoot-out, the first time since 1976. Italy won on penalties (3-2 p). England was so close to clinching their first major honor since 1966 and the Three Lions’ first UEFA EURO title. Bummer.
