Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was always one of the sweetest strikers of the ball in the game.

He scored countless long-range stunners to rescue the Reds – most notably in the Champions League against Olympiacos in 2004 and in the 2006 FA Cup final versus West Ham United.

And the 35-year-old, now at Los Angeles Galaxy, showed during a shooting session with F2Freestylers that he had not lost a step. Do these absolute pingers bring back fonder memories, Liverpool fans?
