Steven Gerrard Is Not Very Well-Known in LA

Premier League legend? Check. Former England captain? Check. Scored against the USA in the 2010 World Cup? Check. Surely, with the steady growth of soccer in the USA and the success of David Beckham on the West Coast, you'd think most people in Los Angeles would have heard of new Galaxy star Steven Gerrard.

Apparently not, according to a video produced by Sky Sports in which people on the streets of L.A. were asked if they were familiar with the former Liverpool captain ahead of his upcoming Galaxy debut.

Respondents include a Samuel L. Jackson impersonator and a big fan of "cutie guy" David Beckham.

Gerrard could make his debut for the Galaxy against Club America on July 11 and will hope his performances can quickly earn him more of a following in his new hometown.
