Outgoing Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard's debut for Los Angeles Galaxy has been pencilled in for 11 July.

The 34-year-old midfielder is set to make his first appearance in a home fixture against Mexico's Club America in the International Champions Cup.

LA Galaxy boss Bruce Arena says he is eager to get Gerrard involved.

"We expect him here before July 11. He'll get some training in and by the time that he's eligible to play, he'll be ready to go," he told lagalaxy.com.

Gerrard is currently on an end-of-season break in Dubai with his Liverpool team-mates, but will soon move to the United States and is eligible to play for the Major League Soccer outfit after 8 July.

The former England skipper has signed a two-year deal with LA Galaxy after announcing in January he would leave Liverpool following a 17-year professional career at Anfield.
