Cara from Shropshire had a day she’ll never forget as she came face to face with her idol, Steven Gerrard!

Cara was diagnosed in January with a rare type of soft tissue cancer. She is football crazy and her favourite player has been Stevie G ever since he played for her favourite team, Liverpool FC so it was no surprise that Cara’s wish was to meet her hero, Gerrard, in real life.

On the day, Cara and Steven spoke about all things football, from who his favourite team were to play, how he got into football, being a manager and a dad. As Cara is a coach herself, she was desperate to pick the managers brain, and Steven even gave her some coaching tips and offered to send her some of his own session plans!

Cara was so happy she got to meet Gerrard, describing the wish as ‘perfect’ and saying he was so nice in real life!
