NEW YORK (AP) - Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin of the Seattle Sounders are among a group of eight players from the U.S. World Cup team voted to the MLS All-Star game.

On Wednesday night, Major League Soccer announced the result of the fan vote. The game against Bayern Munich is scheduled for Aug. 6 in Portland, Oregon.

Sporting Kansas City’s Matt Besler and Graham Zusi, Real Salt Lake’s Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando, Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy and Toronto FC’s Michael Bradley also represented the U.S. in Brazil and were voted to the MLS team.

The U.S. lost 2-1 to Belgium in the World Cup’s round of 16 on July 1.

Galaxy forward Landon Donovan, who played for the United States in the previous three World Cups but was cut from this year’s team, also made it. Forwards Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls and Obafemi Martins of the Seattle Sounders round out the Fan XI.

The winners of the fan vote are not necessarily the starters for the game. All-Star coach Caleb Porter of the Timbers will choose the rest of his game-day roster on Saturday, and the final list of 32 All Stars will be announced on MLSsoccer.com on the day of the game.
