Former Captain of the Liverpool Football Club, Stephen Gerrard has obviously taken off on a sound foot as he scores on his debut in the US Major League Soccer. His Club, LA Galaxy beat San Jose Earthquakes, 5-2.
Robbie Keane scored three goals which Gerrard had a hand on two of them. Stephen-G came handy to equalize at the 37 minute at 2-2 before LA Galaxy took off on a flight to end the game with a three goal gap.
The fans were thrilled with Gerrard’s performance which earned him a standing ovation.
“It was very pleasing to get off the mark. I’m starting to feel a little bit sharper, I’m very close to full fitness,”
“I felt like a kid out there again. I didn’t want to come off – I want to play as much football as I can. One of the reasons why I’ve come to this team was to start all the games and play as many minutes as possible.
“I was determined not to become a squad player. I still feel like I’ve got energy, I still love the game, I’m enjoying training and I’m settling in pretty nicely.” The former English National Team Captain said.
Stephen Gerrard had a poor season at the Liverpool before he left last season. He captained the club to a European Champions League victory in 2005 and had a successful career that lasted more than a decade with the club.
