WATCH: Young fan loses it with Steven Gerrard autograph
One fan in New Jersey was so excited to get an autograph from Liverpool's Steven Gerrard that she lost it like he was a Beatle.
Teams like Liverpool FC might be a long ways from home with their international tours to prepare for the season but with the Premier League's increasing reach, they are never far from die-hard fans, including those awe-struck teenagers.
In the Reds' recent visit to New Jersey as part of their American tour, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard visited some of the mass number of fans waiting for a chance to say hi and perhaps an autograph. Gerrard granted that wish for one girl and, well, she kind of freaked out.
You would think he played for a band that visited the USA from Liverpool, not a soccer club.
We're assuming here this meant a lot to a young fan so good on Gerrard for taking the time to make her
day week year with a moment she'll probably not forget (especially with the help of video from Liverpool).
The 34-year-old Gerrard is a career-long Liverpudlian who had 14 goals in 39 total appearances with the Reds last season as well as representing England internationally.
