Steven Gerrard Praises Spirited Showing Against Unirea Urziceni

Jumat, 26 Februari 2010

"We went a goal down, but we showed good character to get back into it with a fantastic strike from Javier," Gerrard told the club's official website.

Gerrard gave specific praise to Argentina captain Javier Mascherano, whose 25-yard strike put Liverpool back on level terms with the Romanian side.
"When he does score, they tend to be from outside the box. It was a fantastic strike and one I'd certainly be proud of."

Gerrard's strike in the second half saw him break Alan Shearer's record of being the British player to score the most goals for a British team in European competition.

"It's very flattering, some of my goals have come against easy opposition, so I don't think it's fair to put me above the likes of Alan Shearer.

"But to be mentioned in the same breath as that great man is always a pleasure."

Gerrard is also hoping the side can build on this victory to progress to the final of the competition and hopefully add more silverware to Liverpool's cabinet.

"Every competition is very important to this football club, especially when you've gone out of other tournaments.

"This is our last hope of silverware, and it would be terrific if we could go all the way to the final for the fans that have supported us this season."
