Cape Town - Steven Gerrard made a quiet start to his new career with the Los Angeles Galaxy in a friendly on Saturday.

Gerrard had one scoring chance that was saved by the Club America keeper, but otherwise had little influence on the game.

The 35-year-old midfielder has signed for Galaxy after playing his entire 17-season club career with English Premier League side Liverpool.

In the opening game of the International Champions Cup, Galaxy fronted up against Mexico team Club America, who won the CONCACAF Champions League title in April.

Galaxy coach Bruce Arena substituted Gerrard at half-time in the game played at their home stadium in Carson, California.

The Galaxy won 2-1 thanks to goals either side of half-time by Robbie Keane and Alan Gordon.

Club America took the lead in the seventh minute through Darwin Quintero.

Gerrard, who arrived in California barely a week ago, is expected to make his Major Soccer League debut against the San Jose Earthquake next Friday.
