On Sunday 29th, during the international break, players from across Steven Gerrard’s 17-year career on Merseyside will come together for a charity match, with the proceeds likely to mainly benefit the Liverpool foundation.
Over £500,000 could be raised if the game sells out.
Fans will be excited to hear that Jamie Carragher, Jon Arne Riise and Luis Garcia are already confirmed to take part, while many more are still to be announced.
Luis Suarez is unlikely to be present, with Uruguay scheduled to face Morocco in Agadir, whilst Javier Mascherano is also needed by his country as Argentina face El Salvador.
Current Liverpool players Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling could all miss out as Roy Hodgson’s England face Lithuania at Wembley on the Friday, before flying out to Italy for their mid-week friendly.
A good crowd can be expected as Gerrard’s Liverpool career winds to a close. Gerrard currently has 702 appearances and 183 goals in red.
The ex-England skipper will depart Anfield in the summer for pastures new having agreed a two-year deal with MLS franchise LA Galaxy, the former team of David Beckham.
Is Gerrard the best ever Liverpool player? And who is your pick of his team mates over the last 17 years? Have your say below!
