Steven Gerrard’s career may be over but his cousin Bobby Duncan could be about to follow in the footsteps of the Liverpool legend after achieving an incredible record-breaking feat against Brazil.
The 15-year-old scored a hat-trick during England Under-16s’ 4-3 win against Brazil and became the first player at any age group in the country’s history to score three past the South Americans.
Duncan currently plays for Manchester City and is regarded as one of England’s brightest young talents which he showed by scoring three and grabbing an assist in the dramatic international victory.
Gerrard congratulated his cousin on Instagram using the hashtag “future” to express his desire for the youngster to become a star for his country.
The striker is capable of playing in any position across the front line and has excelled at the Manchester City academy as well as for England.
He has now scored four goals in three international appearances with the under-15s and the under-16s and given his cousin’s success it wouldn’t be a surprise if he went on to become a footballing star.
Gerrard made 710 appearances for Liverpool and was awarded 114 caps for England during a very successful career in which he won nine major trophies.
He captained Liverpool and became a club legend after spending over 17 years with the club closest to where he was born in Merseyside.
