But boy was it worth the wait. If there's a better Anchorman-related football gag, we've not seen it.

Top drawer banner making. But it failed to inspire Lampard and his team-mates to the win, with NYC slumping to a 2-1 defeat to Montreal Impact.

The Chelsea legend said:  "It was fantastic to run out on the pitch at Yankee Stadium with the fans showing a lot of support, I really enjoyed that moment obviously, but not perfect circumstances."
