After getting off to a really rocky start with the LA Galaxy, Steven Gerrard is finally finding his legs in America. We showed you his first MLS goal of the season a few weeks ago. Well, he's back on the score sheet this week in an absolutely stunning way.
In the dying minutes of the LA Galaxy's home match with the New England Revolution, Gerrard found himself pushed up the field. He received a pass near the top of the box and then this happened:

Oh, boy...The skill required to pull this off is amazing. Stevie G may have lost some energy in his legs, but the world class skill that made him one of the best players in the world at one time is still there.
The defending is admittedly a little suspect, but that shouldn't take away from the goal whatsoever. Here's a better look at that nutmeg:
