Teenage Girl Overcome with Emotion After Getting Selfie with Steven Gerrard (Video)
Liverpool star Steven Gerard probably never expected he’d meet his biggest fan in New Jersey of all places. And he also probably never expected that his biggest fan would be a 16-year-old girl. But hey, life is full of surprises.
The former England captain is currently travelling the United States with Liverpool FC on their preseason tour. On Monday they stopped by Princeton, New Jersey, for a training session, and at that training session, as you would expect, there was a throng of Liverpool fans waiting to see and possibly get autographs from their favorite players.
One of those fans was the aforementioned 16-year-old girl. And when that 16-year-old girl managed to get a selfie with Gerrard—as well as an autograph on her Steven Gerrard phone case—she absolutely lost it.
Like, I’m talking total, full-body sobbing, as only a 16-year-old girl can do.
Take a look:
I imagine some of you folks out there on the internet might be thinking, “Oh come on, get a grip!” But not me. Most of the time, when you see a teenage girl acting like this, the object of her obsession is some d-bag like Justin Bieber or Harry Styles. So to me, seeing a 16-year-old girl get this excited about a 34-year-old soccer player is pretty refreshing.
