With today's announcement of 11 selections by All-Star manager Bruce Arena and two choices from Commissioner Don Garber, Major League Soccer's All-Star team has 23 members, today's 13 added to the previously named starters. The 23-man team will take on the English Premier League giants in a match that will be televised on ESPN2 and TeleFutura.
