Club Career

Although Gerzicich was born in Los Angeles, he moved to his parents' native Argentina before his first birthday. He joined Argentine club Arsenal de Sarandi and made several first-team appearances in 2006. After the season, he moved on and eventually landed with Hapoel Haifa, a club playing in the Israeli second division.

At Haifa, Gerzicich earned regular playing time for the first time in his career. The next season, he moved to fellow second division club Hapoel Acre where, as before, he was a fixture in the lineup.

In 2009, Gerzicich returned to Hapoel Haifa, which had been promoted to the Israeli Premier League during his absence, and resumed his role in the starting lineup.

Continuing his tradition of post-season transfers, the central midfielder was again on the move in 2010, this time heading to newly-promoted Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona.

International Career

Gerzicich still awaits his first international callup.

United States U20 and former UCSB keeper Justin vom Steeg has moved across the Atlantic to join 2nd Bundesliga club Fortuna Düsseldorf.
