Gerrard Robbed During Champions League Match

Steven Gerrard's house was burglarized Tuesday night while Liverpool was in Marseilles, safely securing passage into the second round of the Champions League. According to the police report, four men broke into his house, confronted his wife and another woman at the house, and then stole some jewelry. Meanwhile, the Liverpool captain led his team to a resounding 4-0 win over Marseille; Gerrard scored the team's first goal from a rebound after his penalty kick was saved in the fourth minute.

They are: former goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek, current goalkeeper Pepe Reina, strikers Peter Crouch and Dirk Kuyt, defender Daniel Agger, and now, Gerrard, Liverpool's captain.
