Steven Gerrard’s goal for Liverpool at Man City was a replica of his strike v Germany in 2001
- February 3, 2013
The comparisons were flying round the social networks as soon as the ball left Steven Gerrard’s foot to briefly put Liverpool 2-1 up at Manchester City on Sunday.
If ever proof were needed of Steven Gerrard’s legendary status in the English game, it can be seen with a comparison of a goal scored in England’s most famous recent victory and the fact that 12 years later the Liverpool captain can still bang them in from distance.
Gerrard famously put England 2-1 up with a terrific low strike on September 1, 2001 as the Three Lions under Sven Goran Eriksson won 5-1 in Munich.
Roll on to February 3, 2013 and the Liverpool captain would have bagged all three points with an identical goal – in terms of the hit and where it landed in the net – but for Pepe Reina’s error allowing Sergio Aguero to equalise just five minutes later.
