Steven Gerrard’s debut in the MLS was a victorious one
Steven Gerrard has begun a new chapter in his life after having spent over 25 years playing for Liverpool, the veteran midfielder made his debut performance for the MLS as he performed for 45 minutes in a friendly match which witnessed LA Galaxy taking a 2-1 victory over Club America in a match where Gerrard had his ups and downs.
There were some instances during this match when Gerrard made some minor slip ups and one of these occasions arrived at the 18th minute as the English midfielder received a pass from his teammate near the goalpost of LA Galaxy but Gerrard failed to clear it away from danger and this allowed Club America on having a goal-scoring chance but it eventually ended in nothing.
However, Gerrard still managed to impress even at his 35 years of age it was fairly memorable performance for the English midfielder as he was constantly slipping pin point passes to his teammates and almost scored a goal of his own after getting past 2 opposition players and slotting shot that was on target but the goal-keeper of Club America Hugo Gonzalez was able to contain without any problem
Club America got ahead in the scoreboard as Carlos Quintero scored the opening goal of the match at the 7th minute but LA Galaxy was the overall better team with more shots on goals and less fouls being committed by the English team and they were rewarded for their efforts later on the match.
Robbie Keane scored the equalizer at the 45th minute and Alan Gordon sealed the victory for LA Galaxy in the final moments of the game. Gerrard played for the opening 45 minutes of the match but was replaced in the 2nd half and even though he only played for the first period of the game, he still managed to make a huge influence as he begins his new journey in the MLS.
