happy 7th birthday, Lexie!
STEVIE WOULD TAKE EVERYONE TO THE BERNABEU FOR CARRA. THAT MEANS HE WOULD HAVE SEEN XABI AND CARRA WOULD HAVE SEEN XABI AND AND AND.
Downing was one of the 11 members of Brendan Rodgers’ squad who enjoyed a short trip to Spain this week to watch Real Madrid’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Borussia Dortmund.
It was a leaving do for Jamie Carragher but the retiring centre-back will have to wait until Sunday afternoon to receive the parting gift he craves from his team-mates.
“Once Carra announced his retirement, Stevie (Gerrard) mentioned to the lads that we should do something and with Carra loving his football so much, we decided to go to a game,” Downing revealed.
“The manager allowed us to go over there and we were all in a box at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night.
“It was the first time I’ve been there and it’s an amazing stadium. The atmosphere towards the end, after Real scored those two late goals, was brilliant.
“Nuri Sahin joined us in the box after and brought a few of the Dortmund players with him. They were obviously delighted about getting through.
“It was a good trip but since we got back the focus has been solely on Everton.” (X)
