Steven Gerrard Scores Screamer In Front Of The Kop Against AC Milan Legends
It was written in the stars. Steven Gerrard scored on his return to Anfield this afternoon as Liverpool picked up a 3-2 win against AC Milan legends in an entertaining affair.
In injury time, the Rangers manager converted to win the game and he celebrated in front of the game, just one more time.
Every Liverpool in the world will love this one. He's still got it!
The Kop loved that one! Gerrard gets his goal from the edge of the penalty area to restore the Reds' lead! #LFC #LFCLegends pic.twitter.com/UUi4P7PN6i

It was a decent game from start to finish.
Andrea Pirlo capped off his performance by bending in a free-kick past Sander Westerveld, leaving him completely helpless but also looking like he did it with minimal effort.
While Jerzy Dudek made a young fan's day in the first half.

Dudek, who became a club legend when he saved Andriy Shevchenko's penalty in 2005, decided to make this young fan's day when he handed over the match ball.
He posed like he did all those years ago against AC Milan and saved the supporter's throw.
Now this is what you call a touch of class. Take a bow, Jerzy.
Dudek, of course, was the man between the sticks when Liverpool pulled off their incredible comeback against that amazing Milan side back in Istanbul, coming from 3-0 down at half-time to eventually win on penalties.
Remember watching Dudek's first ever game in 2001. He became my favourite player for 6 years despite stick from all over. Istanbul was the best for not just the result, but his part in it. Well in Jerzy! https://t.co/AKoMwTLxhB- Ryan Kirwan (@ryankirwan92) March 23, 2019
From the likes of Steven Gerrard and Luis Garcia to Andrea Pirlo and Paulo Maldini, this game was full of legendary figures of the game.
