Steven Gerrard has already fulfilled his dreams of success and glory in the world of football. A lifetime supporter of Liverpool FC, Steven is surely the most successful product of the club's youth academy. In such a short space of time, the young trainee reached outstanding form as he continually improved his game. He was the winner of the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2001 and has been nominated for the senior award in recent years. An all-rounded player, he has played a pivotal role for both club and country making him one of the most popular players of all time. As his playing went from strength to strength, he quickly followed in the steps of Liverpool legends such as Ian Rush and John Barnes as he was passed the captains armband in 2005, Gerrard reached an ultimate high as he marched his side to victory in the Champions League Final in Istanbul. With Liverpool crowned the champions of Europe, Gerrard became the greatest hero and a sought after player. But he wasn't finished there. Inspiring Liverpool to another dramatic comeback against West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup Final, Gerrard scored a spectacular goal to help take the trophy back to Anfield.
