Liverpool's Adam Lallana meets England cricketers Joe Root, Moeen Ali

Adam Lallana enjoyed a rare leisure day on Thursday by treating himself to a trip to Lord's to watch the England cricket team kick off (bat off?) the first day of their Test match against South Africa.

Before a bowl was bowled, Lallana had the pleasure of bumping into a celebrity Liverpool fan in the shape of actor Damian Lewis, perhaps most famous for playing Nick Brody in Homeland.

Damian Lewis... cool geezer and a Red 🔴Next James Bond surely 😂 #ENGvSA #Lords

After watching England hit a respectable 357-5 on the first day of their first innings, Lallana made his way inside the pavilion (without a jacket and tie!) and brushed shoulders with a few of the players, namely bowling duo Moeen Ali and Liam Dawson.

3 gun footballers! 😂 great to see and meet @officiallallana at the test today! 👍🏻 @daws128

The midfielder also enjoyed an extended debrief with England's hero of the hour Joe Root, who scored a landmark 184 runs on his debut as Test captain.

The weather was fair, the cricket was entertaining and a jolly lovely time was had by all, it would seem.

Lallana is now due to report back to Liverpool for preseason training after being given a few extra weeks of holiday due to his involvement in England's recent (football) international matches against France and Scotland.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
