CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Juninho was one of six players named to the MLS All-Star team that will take on English Premier League champion Manchester United.
The inclusion of the final six players was decided in voting by MLS players and announced Monday. Under the league’s collective bargaining agreement, 32 players are named annually to the All-Star team, though not all players can dress for the game.
The other players selected on the ballot are Seattle midfielder Osvaldo Alonso, D.C. United midfielder Dwayne De Rosario, Vancouver forward Eric Hassli, New York midfielder Joel Lindpere and goalie Nick Rimando of Real Salt Lake.
The All-Star game against Man United will be played Wednesday night at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.
