Major League Soccer’s top players took on Manchester United from the English Premier League in the 15th annual MLS All-Star Game at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
This is the first match between the teams. The MLS All-Stars have won three times in four matches against teams from the powerful English Premier League since 2005, losing only to Everton in penalty kicks in 2009.
The MLS All-Star lineup includes US World Cup hero Landon Donovan, 2008 league MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto, past World Cup selections in Brian Ching, Edson Buddle and Bobby Convey and seven-time MLS All-Star Shalrie Joseph. LA Galaxy coach and former US national team boss Bruce Arena led the group.
