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.

Well looked who showed up at Wembley 🙂 Damian, his son Gulliver, and pals attended England v Denmark, the second of two semi-finals, at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. England beat Denmark 2-1 to seal a place in the final of the men’s European championships for the first time. Damian even sported his Soccer Aid shirt in solidarity with England.

With 60,000 fans inside Wembley, it took an extra-time winner from Harry Kane to secure a Three Lions victory. Now England has to focus on Italy.

Damian Lewis Plays Teeth For Liverpool – May 31, 2019

A Shoutout to Liverpool

by Damianista | damian-lewis.com | May 31, 2019

Damian’s beloved Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final  at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain on Saturday, June 1. The two English Premier League heavyweights met two times in this year’s Premier League with Liverpool winning 2-1 both times. Five-time winners Liverpool will be aiming to get their sixth title whereas Hotspurs will be playing to win their first!

Relying on Damian’s earlier tweet we assume he will be in the stadium tomorrow cheering for his Red Men!

And he did a shout out today playing his teeth for all Liverpool Fans out there. You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Is there anything this guy can’t do? 🙂

Go and get it, Red Men, for Damian, for me and for all Liverpool fans!

This Billions Star is a Well-Known Red

No surprise, as we reported yesterday, that Damian would attend the 2018 UEFA Champions League final today, Saturday, May 26, 2018 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine in support of his favorite football team, Liverpool, in the LFC vs. Real Madrid match. Damian posted this video to Twitter as he boarded the plane headed to Kyiv.

Damian has been a longtime fan of LFC since childhood – he took part in the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4 and last year he celebrated his 46th birthday at Anfield for Liverpool’s visit of Tottenham.

An avid Reds supporter, Damian (pictured with Clive Owen above) made the epic journey to Kyiv in the hope of being witness to a historic battle to take the UEFA Champions League trophy for the sixth time. But it wasn’t meant to be. Although his Redmen lost to Real Madrid 3-1 and no doubt he was gutted, Damian showed resilience in defeat by offering sportsmanship for his team and fans abroad.
