Stewart Downing & Friend: Shopping, Not Swotting
Stewart Downing and his girlfriend (?) went shopping in Manchester city centre on Monday, the 28th, which doesn’t sound like normal form for a player in the midst of prepping for the Euros alongside his international teammates.
We loathe ourselves for even saying this but, per The Daily Mail, England’s first official day of training was two days ago, held at Arsenal’s London Colney grounds.
Although Tuesday in London ain’t the same as Monday in Manchester, let’s not lose sight of what’s really important here: Downing’s mystery girl. Based on outward appearances only, she seems like the low maintenance kind of gal.
UPDATE: His mystery gal is apparently his sis, Natalie. Cheers for the spot, DSS & Sophie!
