With only a couple of months left of Steven Gerrard’s 17-year Liverpool career, yesterday saw the The Kop legend honoured with an all-star testimonial match at Anfield.
Facing a team captained by his former England and Liverpool teammate Jamie Carragher, both sides were littered with an array of football superstars both past and present.
Liverpool’s current team were well presented with Glen Johnson, Rickie Lambert and Brad Jones all turning out for Gerrard’s team. While the match also saw some former Liverpool legends like Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres returning to Merseyside to celebrate the career of their former captain.
Among the other surprise inclusions were Jon Terry, Didier Drogba and Thierry Henry, who despite retiring last year showed that he had not lost it with an incredible “fake shot pass.”
The game eventually ended 2-2 with Gerrard grabbing two goals from the penalty spot.
